Happy Grand Parents Day ☺

National Grandparents’ Day is a secular holiday celebrated in the United States since 1978 and officially recognized in a number of countries on various days of the year, either as one holiday or sometimes as a separate Grandmothers’ Day and Grandfathers’ Day (for the first time Grandma’s Day was celebrated in Poland in 1965,[1]see below for dates by country). One celebrates both paternal and maternal grandparents.

National Grandparents’ Day in the U.S. is the first Sunday after Labor Day, in September.

The flower of the U.S. National Grandparents Day is the forget-me-not which blooms in the spring. As a result, seasonal flowers are given in appreciation to grandparents on this day.
