Many countries celebrate Father’s Day and Mother’s Day. If you could dedicate a holiday to a more distant relative, who would it be — and why?
I think that Grandparents are the most under-appreciated relatives. When parents need a last minute babysitter, or just some time to themselves, it’s usually the grandparents who take the kids. Not to mention in the number of skipped generation households is on the rise. Skipped generation families are those in which the grandparents are raising the grandchildren.
While we do have a day for grandparents, I bet you have no clue when it is. It’s celebrated on different days in different countries, but a quick google search should give you an answer.
But why wait? Next time you see your grandparents, let them know you appreciate them! As my high school band director said, never turn down a hug from grandma, you never know how many more chances you’ll get!
Better yet, give them a call right now! Unless you’re reading this at some ridiculous hour of the night. Call them in the morning, maybe? Up to you, but show them some love!
