September 12 - National Grandparents Day

What Is National Grandparents Day?

National Grandparents Day, just like Mother’s Day or Father’s Day is the day on which we celebrate and honour the parents of our parents. For many of us, they are around just as much and for nearly as long as our own parents are. We love them, we trust them, and they hold very special places in our hearts and our lives. Our grandparents deserve just as much recognition and praise. Spend the day reminiscing about your favourite memories that you have with your grandparents, and get together to create some new ones. Listen to the stories they have to tell about their lives and growing up, and raising your parents. Do what you can to show them how much you love and appreciate them.

When Is National Grandparents Day?

The Sunday after Labor Day of every year is specially reserved to celebrate an important set of relatives, our grandparents.

History Of National Grandparents Day

We have been unable to find the creator of this national day, but we know that it has been celebrated since at least 1978. The United States Senate and President Jimmy Carter officially recognized Marian McQuade of Oak Hill as the founder of this observance.
