Every day of the year seems to be dedicated to some occasion, person or event. From Rose Day to Friendship Day to even a Slurpee Day. But none of this takes away the importance and relevance of one of the most important days that truly need a celebration, Grandparents Day.
The day marks an acknowledgement of what the contribution of the older generation to the lives of children, youth and young adults. Saluting their experience and guidance and a lifetime commitment to family.
And of all bonds that exist, the one between a grandparent and grandchild is extremely special. Just a simple phone call to tell them you love them is the easiest thing to do on Grandparents Day. They cherish nothing more than getting to spend time with their grandchildren, so take time out and spend the day with them. You could even go a step further and make a picnic out of it or organise a day out to their favourite haunt.
In some countries this day is a national holiday giving people a chance to truly indulge. While some countries believe that every day should be dedicated to the elderly. But no matter what the date or way to celebrate, the importance of Grandparents day is recognised all over the world.
Some people shy away from celebrating such things, assuming them to be marketing gimmicks. But Grandparents Day goes way beyond that. It is a time to connect multiple generations and make family bonds stronger.
