Happy Grandparents Day! Grandparents Day is a day for celebrating the connections between the generations. The roots of Grandparents Day go back to 1956 and a West Virginia mother named Marian McQuade. While helping to organize a community celebration for those over 80, she became aware of the many nursing home residents who were forgotten by their families. She wanted a holiday to bring attention to these forgotten individuals and to honor all grandparents.
This Sunday, September 13, is National Grandparent’s Day. Get a card in the mail. Send flowers. Plan to show them some love!
