Today’s recipe is the classic French Toast Bake (or Casserole as some people call it). I like this recipe because it is perfect for many reasons! It’s cinnamon-y and vanilla-y and you can make it less or more so depending on your taste buds How about being a perfect breakfast for a crowd because you can adjust the ingredients upward easily to feed more people It’s perfect because you can make it ahead of time And it’s a good Father’s Day breakfast which is coming up soon… Make this warm tasty dish for the father figure in your life. Many fathers feel like moms get all the fanfare for Mothers’ Day anyway so surprise Dad with breakfast. And while you are giving him his gifts, impress him with your knowledge of the history of Father’s Day! A Brief Father’s Day History The first Father’s Day in the United States was on June 19, 1910. However, it was not made an official holiday until 1972. Father’s Day was fashioned after Mother’s Day (of course) . The first commercial Mother’s Day was held in 1908 when a department store in Philadelphia (John Wanamaker store) held a ceremony for mothers. Other people and stores saw the financial potential of this holiday and by 1914, the second Sunday in May was declared a national holiday. Sadly, a national campaign to have a similar day for fathers was not as popular as fast. In 1910, the state of Washington celebrated the first Father’s Day. In 1916, President Wilson celebrated the day in Washington, D. C., and in 1924, President Coolidge tried to get the state government to recognize the holiday. Many men were not fans of the day themselves. They either derided the commercialism and gifts that the father paid for himself or resisted the loss of masculinity in the celebration of these holidays. Some people tried to roll both holidays together into a “Parents Day” during the 20s and 30s. The Great Depression caused retailers to double down on commercialization and during WWII, Father’s Day was pushed as a way to celebrate the returning veterans. By the end of the way, Father’s Day was a national institution. This was made official; in 1972.
