Thankful For Grandparents!

Did you know that Grandparents Day will be celebrated in the U.S. on Sunday, September 9th?  It was proclaimed a national holiday in 1978 by President Jimmy Carter. The idea was conceived in 1970 by a West Virginia housewife, Marian McQuade. Through her efforts statewide, the United States Congress passed legislation to proclaim the first Sunday after Labor Day as National Grandparents Day. September was chosen as the month to celebrate our beloved Grandparents because it is a month representative of the "autumn years" of life. A special day to recognize Grandparents is also set aside in several other countries throughout the world. For example, it is celebrated each year in Canada on the second Sunday of September. In Australia, Queensland was the first state to officially celebrate Grandparents Day on the first Sunday in November 2010. Several European nations also set aside a special day to honor Grandparents. France celebates the first Sunday of March, Italy on October 2nd, and the U.K. recognizes Grandparents on the first Sunday of October. Why not say "thank you" with a hug and custom gift from Zoey's Attic? Special thanks to my awesome Grandparents. Love you always from here to eternity!
