Grandparents Day

Grandparents day was founded in 1973 by Marian McQuade in the state of West Virginia. She wanted to let her community know how much grandparents (senior citizens) do for the community. Senator Alphonse D'Amato pushed for the holiday. Senator Jennings Randolph introduced the resolution to the Senate. Then five years later Congress passed the proclamation. Finally, President Jimmy Carter signed the proclamation. It became a national holiday in 1978. The first Sunday after Labor Day is when Grandparents Day is celebrated. This year Grandparents Day is celebrated on September 13, 2009. Grandparents Day was created for the young to show how much they appreciate their grandparents, and to give honor and respect to one’s elders. It also allows grandparents to impart upon the young their wisdom and their love.
