How did Grandparents Day Start?
This public holiday was signed into law by President Jimmy Carter in 1978. On September 6, 1979, a Presidential Proclamation made it official and the first Sunday of September after Labor day was designated as Grandparents Day.
The origin of this holiday to celebrate grandparents is thought to have been from the efforts of Marian McQuade, housewife from Virginia. In the 1970s, she advocated for the senior citizens and wanted the public to know about their contributions. She wanted the public to adopt a grandparent as they are willing to share their knowledge from their lifelong experience.
