Google shared an interesting stat this evening: Father's Day topped Mother's Day in Google searches this year, and that's a first.

The announcement came through this tweet: "This year, dads win for the first time: searches for father's day higher than mother's day."

Year after year, Mother's Day always gets more searches than Father's Day, typically by a 10-to-7 margin, per Google Insights. It's unclear why the shift but one theory is the holiday creeped up on folks quicker than normal this year and people wanted to verify the date.

See the Google Insights chart below that shows the jump in Father's Day searches.
