Retailers and greeting card companies would like you to think Father’s Day is just as important as Mother’s Day. Is that really the case?

According to most people, the celebration of fatherhood — which was created to complement Mother’s Day — doesn’t get the same amount of attention as the original.

A RetailMeNot.com poll of 1,005 adults found that 77 percent feel moms get more attention on Mother’s Day than dads get on their day.

However, the consensus is that it shouldn’t be that way. The survey also found that 81 percent believe that Mother’s Day and Father’s Day should be celebrated equally.
