Grandparents Day is celebrated on the first Sunday after Labor Day, a day set aside to honor the very special relationship between grandparents and grandchildren. This is a wonderful opportunity to teach children about the strength, information and guidance older generations can offer to their families and communities. The founder of the day, Marian McQuade, wanted Grandparents Day to be a family day. She envisioned families enjoying each other in small gatherings, holding family reunions, or participating together in community events.
On this day, grandparents are encouraged to share their hopes, dreams, and values; while families can use the opportunity to shower their loved ones with appreciation. If you want to honor the matriarchs and patriarchs in your family, call the floral experts at Ah Sam Florist.
