Since 1978, the first Sunday after Labor Day each year celebrates National Grandparents Day!
Originally established to bring attention to the cause of lonely elderly in nursing homes and to persuade grandchildren to tap into the wisdom and heritage their grandparents could provide, Grandparents Day is a great reason to spend the day visiting with friends and family while celebrating the lives of the grandmothers and grandfathers who have helped teach us, raise us, spoil us, and enrich our lives through the years.
To all of the amazing grandparents who are still with us and those who have passed, our love and appreciation goes out to you this Grandparents Day!
Will you be celebrating the day with your your grandparents or honoring them this year? Let us know how in the comments below!
