Celebrating Grandparents Day at TheHolidayZone.com

National Grandparents Day serves as a day for Americans to honor grandparents -- not just those to whom they are related, but each and every senior citizen who has helped to make home, community, and country what it is today. Grandparents Day credits its origins to Mrs. Marian McQuade. Herself a mother of 15 and grandmother of 40, McQuade was motivated to action by the plight of elderly persons whom she saw spending the final years of their lives alone in nursing homes. Not only were these individuals losing out on important part of life, McQuade believed, but their grandchildren too were missing out on the wisdom, knowledge, and rich cultural heritage grandparents could supply.

> In 1973, McQuade launched a campaign to the United States of America set aside a day to honor its Grandparents. Five short years later, her cause reached all the way to the White House where then-President Jimmy Carter proclaimed the Sunday after Labor Day to be National Grandparents Day.
