The Real Reasons We Give Gifts on Father’s Day   Did you know that the only reason we actually celebrate Father’s Day was because we already had a Mother’s Day back in the early 1900’s and one little girl, raised solely by her father, thought it was unfair. Sonora Smart Dodd told her Pastor that Dad’s should get the same form of recognition as the Mum’s raising their children. And hence the first Father’s Day was celebrated back in 1910. In the 1980’s the Father’s Council themselves recognised Father’s Day had become ‘a second Christmas’ for men across the world, giving this day even more significance in the annual calendar. …

Setting your own ‘digital rules’ ahead of your wedding is important, whether you want every last second of the occasion out there via social media – or want to be completely unplugged. Not many people would ban social media from the wedding altogether: a recent bridal survey in the US found that only 14 per cent would ban the use of social media at their nuptials. However, the chances are that you’ll want to take some control over the social media at your wedding, even if it’s just to ask your friends not to post any pictures of the wedding until you do. And whatever rules the couple set out, …
