The History of Grandparent’s Day
In 1973, Senator Jennings Randolph introduced a resolution in the US Senate to make a national holiday called Grandparent’s Day. The idea was to give children a chance to celebrate their grandparents or other important seniors in their lives, and the contributions they have made to history. The resolution bumped around in the congress for a while, but in February of 1977, it was introduced as a joint resolution. On August 3, 1978, President Jimmy Carter signed the proclamation, and Grandparent’s Day became an official holiday.
So why do we celebrate grandparent’s day? We celebrate it because grandparents are worth celebrating. Most kids and adults alike know how lucky they are to have their grandparents in their lives, and a day to celebrate them is certainly worth having.
