Grandparents’ Day will be here soon, which means now is the time to start planning the perfect way to celebrate these special people. On September 13, grandchildren everywhere will be looking for something to let their grandparents know how important they are. Those who live close to their grandparents may complete the celebration with a fantastic meal together. Those who live far away might instead use the phone and email to get in touch and connect on this unique day.
What is Grandparents’ Day?
Grandparents Day has been celebrated in the United States since 1978 and is designed for the grandparents on both sides of one’s family. Marian McQuade of West Virginia is largely credited as being the founder of this special holiday. She had made it her life’s goal to educate people about the valuable contributions of seniors throughout history. In the early 1970’s she began urging each states to proclaim their own Grandparents’ Day and quickly saw success. It was signed by President Jimmy Carter in 1978 to honor the contributions made by grandparents for their children’s children.
Great gifts for Grandparents’ Day
Giving the right gift can be the perfect touch to Grandparents’ Day. It makes it clear how much you care. Flowers can be a fantastic gift idea for this holiday. Flowers easily help to light up a room. Since the holiday occurs during the beginning of autumn, it is a wonderful time to add some color indoors as the flowers outside begin to disappear for much of the country. Here are two arrangements that we at Zeidler’s love for this occasion.
