Celebrate G-Day in Style
Pop Pop. Mom Mom. Papa. Nana. Grandpa. Grandma. They go by many different names, but their role is always the same - to spoil their grandchildren with hugs, kisses and everything in between. Every year, Grandparents Day falls on the first Sunday after Labor Day. When Marian McQuade founded National Grandparents Day, it was with the hope that younger generations would look to their grandparents, many of whom were in nursing homes, for wisdom and heritage. Today, the holiday gives grandchildren the opportunity to recognize their elders by showing them how much they mean in our lives. There are plenty of affordable - or even free - ways to give back to Grandma and Grandpa. If they live nearby, prepare a special Grandparents Day brunch where they're the guest of honor.
