Grandparents Day
Celebration

About this event

On the first Sunday after Labor Day we celebrate National Grandparents Day. This year the date falls on September 11. Like Mother’s day and Father’s day we also have a whole day dedicated to our grandparents. Grandparents and children have a special connection that is proven to both make grandparents live longer, and also make children more emotionally resilient. Grandparents Day is an opportunity to treasure that connection and spend some quality family time together.

WHY WE LOVE GRANDPARENTS DAY ?

They Love Us and We Love Them

Our Grandparents love us. They can be stubborn and opinionated but in the end they always want what's best for us.

They Have More Wisdom Than We Think

Our grandparents have seen all kinds of things and lived a lot, through all that living it's not surprising that they learned a thing or two. They have so much to pass down and we should take some time to listen.

We Wouldn’t Be Here Without Them

Let's be real, if it wasn’t for them we wouldn’t be here. They raised our parents and they made time to spoil us when we were little, it's only fair we return the favor now.
