According to the latest internet search data, nobody cares about Dad in Montana. I admit I'm somewhat skeptical about this info, but the internet never lies, right?

The folks at RushOrderTees.com looked at Google searches using the keywords and phrases: “fathers day”, “when is fathers day”, “fathers day gifts”, “fathers day gift ideas”, “fathers day ideas”, and “happy fathers day messages."

A twelve-month average search volume for each phrase was then totaled and calculated to give the searches per 100k residents. Montana ranked 48th in the US. Only Vermonters and South Dakotans care less.

What are you planning for dad?

Every dad is different, of course, but my spouse and kids always do an amazing job of making the day special. My perfect Montana Father's Day usually includes the three B's... Beef, Beer, and Bourbon. Sometimes there is a 4th B that I won't mention on this family-friendly website. Father's Day is Sunday, June 16 this year.
