History of Grandparents Day

History of Grandparents Day

Created in 1978, Grandparent’s Day is a holiday designated to remember the elder members of a family. Noted as being created from petitions made to the national Government in the United States, it slowly has gained in popularity as the Baby Boom generation ages. Celebrated on the first Sunday after Labor Day, in September, it is, as the statue that created it says, a day to “honor grandparents, to give grandparents an opportunity to show love for their children's children, and to help children become aware of strength, information, and guidance older people can offer". The Forget-Me-Not is declared the official flower, and a song was commissioned in 2005 by Johnny Prill as the Official Song.
