Today is Grandparents Day! It is a holiday that is celebrated in most countries around the world on the second Sunday in September. Like Mother’s and Father’s Day, it is a day to celebrate our loved ones—this time, our grandparents. Grandparents, well senior citizens in general, are often neglected and forgotten in today’s busy world. They usually live away from their families, often in long term care facilities, which can lead to sadness and depression.
So it is important to show your grandparents how much you care! Visit them often. Spend some quality time with them and learn their about their past. The elderly have so much life experience and can teach the younger generations so much! Today is the perfect day to surprise them some flowers and a card. The gesture will definitely bring smiles to your grandparents’ faces! In fact, flowers are known to improve their physical and mental well being!
Any gift would be appreciated. After all, it’s the thought that truly counts! But if you want to go the extra mile, pick out specific ones for them! Here is a list of flowers and their flower meanings that would be perfect for Grandparents Day:
Aster: Patience, Daintiness
