Did you know that, in the United States, there almost was a Family Month? That's right! As acknowledged by Congress in 1998, it’s the month between Mother’s Day and Father’s Day.   So, we hope you celebrated Mother’s Day and that you will keep right on celebrating until Father’s Day. Want ideas for how?
