SOME FACTS AND HISTORY ABOUT SADIE HAWKIN'S DAY

Only in America can a fictitious holiday created in a comic strip become celebrated by people all over the country.  In a comic strip  Gasoline Alley, by Al Capp, the father of a homely daughter wanted to marry off his daughter.  He came up with a race in which girls who were not pretty would race after the men in the the town.  If they caught them, they were theirs to marry.

Towns and schools across the country have changes the rules a little, but there are plenty of "Sadie Hawkin's Dances" in which the girls asks the guys to attend.

Ask him out: It is up the woman to ask out the man - but where to take them?  You do not need to think fancy or expensive.  Men will eat at a greasy spoon if the food is good, and there are very large portions.  So keep that in mind when making reservations.

Invite him over: Make dinner.  Guys like a nice home cooked meal.  Even if you are married, and make dinner every night, make this day special and actually ask him to dinner.  Most men like steak, or a nice surf and turf dinner.  You can get some great stuff from Omaha Steaks.

Make him feel special: Buy a little token of affection.  Some suggestions include: Cigars, chocolates, tickets to a sporting event, food (the stomach is quickest way to his heart)
