Grandparents Day is an annual opportunity to honor the legacy and history in our families, as well as to celebrate the keepers of the stories – our grandparents! Established in 1978, the holiday was the brainchild of Marian McQuade, a wife and mother who sought to create a time set aside for these special relationships. Far from looking for a commercial event, it was McQuade’s vision that the day would be observed with family gatherings and reunions. Inherent in the times together, she hoped there would be mutual love and appreciation for all of the generations which comprised a family. She also felt that it was important for the younger generations to really get to know and love the matriarchs and patriarchs of the family.
