National Grandparent's Day

Posted on September 3, 2014 at 9:31 AM
National Grandparent’s Day…Making Memories  

September 7, 2014 marks National Grandparent’s Day. The origin of this special time can be traced back to 1973 and Marian Lucille Herndon McQuade. She envisioned this holiday honoring grandparents and the elderly. The day was a perfect opportunity for grandparents to shower their love on their children's children and make fond memories. The celebration would help children appreciate the strength, and wisdom older people can offer.

McQuade sought acceptance for this celebration from  President Jimmy Carter.  He signed the proclamation making the first Sunday of September after Labor Day National Grandparents Day on August 3, 1978.

Today the legacy of Marian McQuade is carried on by her children and grandchildren with some of them working on the National Grandparents Day Council.

Please write and tell me what you’re doing to celebrate National Grandparents Day. If you’re fresh out of new ideas, visit Apples4theteacher.com. There, you’ll find some delightful comments like the ones below that children made when asked the question, “What is a grandparent?”

Taken from papers written by a class of 8 year olds:
-When they take us for walks, they slow down past things like pretty leaves and caterpillars.
-They don't say, "Hurry up."
-They wear glasses and funny underwear.
- When they read to us, they don't skip. They don't mind if we ask for the same story over again.
