Today is Grandparents Day! Send personalized free eCards to your grandparents to let them know you're thinking of them! A woman named Marian McQuade established Grandparents Day in 1973. McQuade raised fifteen children and had forty-three grandchildren. The purpose of this day is to honor grandparents and strengthen the bond between grandparents and grandchildren. It is also dedicated to educating children about the valuable contributions seniors have made throughout history.
Grandparents Day is celebrated every year on the first Sunday after Labor Day. It's a great opportunity to talk to your grandparents about your family tree or look through old photo albums on a video call together.
Happy Grandparents Day to all the grandparents and grandchildren of the world!
