Grandparents Day

 Well I did know about Mother's Day and Father's Day but Grandparents Day is a new one to me! Did you know that Grandparents day is celebrated on Sunday 25 October 2020 in Australia? 

It is traditionally held on the last Sunday in October to celebrate the role of grandparents and older people in the our society.  It's to honour all the things they have done and the things they keep doing.

It is celebrated on the first Sunday in October in the United Kingdom, in September in the United States of America and in October in Italy. Currently twenty countries in the world celebrate the role of the elderly. 

Gray hair is a crown of splendor, it is attained in the way of righteousness - Proverbs 16:31

Grandchildren are the crowning glory of the aged; parents are the pride of their children Proverbs 17:6

Ideas to celebrate

  • Invite them over and cook a special meal.
  • Enjoy a special tea party with them.
  • Create a personalized photo gift for them.
  • Meet at a park and enjoy an afternoon tea with them.
  • Create a handmade card.
  • Share happy stories with your children of growing up with your parents.
  • Ask Grandparents to share happy memories of parening their children.
  • Spending unhurried time together is the best gift.
