Mother's Day More Celebrated Than Father's Day

Does Mother's Day Get More Fanfare Than Dad's Day?

Candy and flowers versus a barbecue and some gadgets. When it comes to days honoring mom and dad, the greeting card companies and department stores would have us believe that things are evenly split. But a new survey finds that the holidays aren't quite even-steven.

According to, 80 percent of the men surveyed think Mother's Day gets more attention than Father's Day. The men aren't necessarily upset about this finding, but 60 percent do say that they share the responsibility for childcare equally with their spouse. Who's holiday gets more attention in your house?

I really don't care about mothers day. To me it's another Hallmark holiday just like valentines day. My son makes a cute little something at school, and they make me breakfast. That's enough. I know why people say they celebrate it, and if you like it that's great, but it's just not for me. My husband loves Father's day, on the other hand. So to make him feel good I get him a little something and fawn over him all day. He loves it.

When it comes to advertisements, it actually seems like dads get a bit more because of all the dads and grads sales. Don't forget Dad while you're shopping for your Grad! I get it, it rhymes, but seriously!
