We love our dads. From lessons in cooking and gardening to important life talks, they've taught us so much. In honor of this Father's Day, here are our favorite fun facts about dads.  

The first Father's Day was celebrated on June 19, 1910

There are 70.1 million dads in the U.S.  

Roses are the official flower of Father's Day! A red rose is worn in the lapel to honor your father if he is living; a white rose if he has passed away.  

Since 1965, fathers have tripled the amount of quality time they spend with their children from 2.5 hours to 7.3 hours per week. Despite the upswing, 46% of dads still wish they could spend more time with their kids.  

What does Dad want for Father's Day? According to a 2012 study, 40% of dads want to spend quality time with their kids and 20% would rather receive no gift at all. Awww, dad!
