Grandparent's Day

    History of Grandparent's Day

    The USA based Grandparents Day originated with a housewife in Fayette County, West Virginia.

    Marian McQuade's primary motivation was to promote the need to pay attention of lonely elderly people in nursing homes. She also hoped to persuade grandchildren to listen and learn from the years of wisdom of their grandparents.

    President Jimmy Carter, proclaimed a National Grandparents Day in 1978. This is celebrated every year on the first Sunday after Labor Day.
