Grandparents Day – The Date, Wishes and Quotes

Grandparents Day

Grandparents Day is a day to recognize, honor and celebrate our Grandparents. Grandparents play an important role in our lives. The wisdom and the knowledge they share with their grandchildren will influence the child’s life forever. Being a grandparent is different than being a parent; usually, they have more patience and time than when they were a parent.

A grandparent will get down on the floor and do silly things that they would never have dreamed of doing until they became a grandparent. No matter what is going on in their lives they will make the time for their grandchildren.

So this day, which originally started in the United States is a day to thank our Grandparents, a day to appreciate all they do in our lives. Below find wishes for a Happy Grandparents Day, a collection of Grandparents quotes, and a poem for your Grandparents.
