National Grandparents Day always falls on the first Sunday after Labor Day, which means in 2018 it lands on Sunday, September 9th.
The smell of cookies baking. Memories of learning how to ride a bike. Celebrating holidays. Receiving little gifts just because. These are all experiences we strongly associate with our grandparents. Grandparents are with us from the very beginning of our lives—they accompany us through our childhood, are present at our most important moments, and cheer us on from the sidelines through it all
National Grandparents Day isn’t just about celebrating grandparents—it’s also about supporting and appreciating the elderly who live in nursing homes.
Our grandparents may be old, but they’re also wise. No matter what problem that arises for us, they have either experienced something similar themselves or can dish out the best advice. The best part is that they won’t judge you. They love you unconditionally, so they’ll give you impartial tips without getting mad or disappointed in you. Sometimes they won’t even tell your parents when you’ve done something wrong and need that advice to get out of a jam.
Thank goodness for our grandparents.
