Perfect love sometimes does not come until the first grandchild. ~Welsh Proverb
Grandparents Day is observed on the first Sunday after Labor Day, and is a time set aside to celebrate the very special relationship between grandchildren and their grandparents. This is the perfect opportunity to teach children about the wisdom and experience that older generations can offer to their families, and to society in general. Marian McQuade, who was instrumental in establishing the holiday, wasn't interested in it being a big commercial holiday. Instead, she wanted Grandparents Day to be a time to celebrate family, and her vision was to see families gathering, holding family reunions, and spending time together.

People have been celebrating their mothers for thousands of years. In fact, we have records of holidays as far back as Greek and Roman cultures. However, Mother’s Day as we recognize it today was unrelated to those ancient cultures. It may have begun as a Christian tradition in Europe called “Mothering Sunday”, which was observed on the last weekend of Lent. Established as a day for people to return to their “mother church”, it evolved into a day to have reunions with family and bringing their mothers flowers and small gifts. But here in America, Mother’s Day as we know it today is only about 100 years old. Read More about Honoring Her on Mother’s Day »

Did You Know? The Easter egg has its origination in ancient spring festivals. The egg was considered a symbol of fertility, and women would carry as many eggs as possible around with them, often in grass "nests". The nests eventually became baskets - and were used to carry the eggs, flowers, and other treats. Read More about Easter Flowers, Centerpieces & Gifts »
Happy Maewyn Succat's Day! Although you may not recognize the birth name of St. Patrick. you likely are familiar with the cultural and religious holiday celebrated in his honor.
