Here's an example of a question from last year's packet:
J. J. Berringer of Vancouver, Washington was one of the first people to celebrate this event. A petition to recognize this event was presented by Senator Clarence C. Dill to Woodrow Wilson. The Flaminaire Company popularized this event in France. The German equivalent of this event is held on Ascension Day and is celebrated by dragging around a bollerwagen full of beer. One of the biggest advocates for the establishment of this holiday was Spokane churchgoer Sonora Dodd. To drum up interest in this holiday, Macy's held a (*) sports-themed parade in 1941. A day before he proclaimed National Hunting and Fishing Day, this holiday was made an official US holiday by Richard Nixon in 1972. This holiday was kept alive by advertising from the New York Associated Menswear Retailers. It's held on the third Sunday in June. For 10 points, name this holiday which sees a spike in necktie sales.
ANSWER: Father's Day
