25 Days of Fatherhood

Every year, ABC Family runs a special programming for the first 25 days of December showing classic holiday family shows and movies.

Although we don’t watch every single movie, my kids get excited and plot which movies will be great for our weekly family movie night. This year, we want to celebrate you with a tribute: All Pro Dad’s 25 Days of Fatherhood.

For the first 25 days of December, we will celebrate all things dad. We asked some of the dads in our office what they love about being a dad, and we also asked what they love about their dad. The answers made up much of our 25 Days of Fatherhood.
