Grandparents reading to grandchildren

National Grandparents Day

Congress passed the legislation proclaiming the first Sunday after Labor Day as National Grandparents’ Day in the U.S. and, on August 3, 1978, then-President Jimmy Carter signed the proclamation.

This day is also an opportunity for people to appreciate and express their love to their grandparents through kind actions such as making a phone call or inviting their grandparents for dinner. People living in retirement villages or nursing homes may receive a visit from their grandchildren or loved ones on this day.

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.
