Why is grandparents' day celebrated?

Grandparents from all over the country are celebrated on 2 October with a civil event that has become a national event since 2005 with the law of the Del Paeseno Parliament (159 of 31 July 2005), just as happens for fathers and mothers, to celebrate the importance of their role within families and society and thank them for what they do every day. In fact, grandparents not only contribute to the growth and education of grandchildren, but are also a fundamental support for parents and an important help for many voluntary associations.

In Del Paese he was chosen on 2 October because it is the day when the Catholic Church celebrates the Guardian Angels, who, just like grandparents, protect children.

However, each nation has chosen a different date.

In the UK, introduced in 1990, since 2008 it has been celebrated on the first Sunday in October. In the Use there is National Grandparents Day and it is celebrated every year on the first Sunday of September after Labor Day.

In France there are even two dates: one for grandmothers (the first Sunday in March) and one for grandparents (the first Sunday in October).

In Canada it is celebrated on October 25th.

In Estonia, the second Sunday of September.

In many Latin countries we celebrate on July 26, the day in which the Catholic liturgy celebrates Saint Joachim and Saint Anne, the father and mother of Mary. And grandparents of Jesus. Same date also for Portugal and Brazil.

The UN itself has decided to promote a day dedicated to elderly people in general at the international level: it is the first of October.

A curiosity. Did you know that grandparents' day also has official flowers? Are the do not forget me. Scientific name mysotis (in Greek it means "mouse ears"), are those small, blue flowers present throughout the country.
There is also an official song of the day: "You will be". Written and created in 2005 by the singer-songwriter Walter Bassani.

How to celebrate grandparents on October 2nd? With a nice colored card with a dedication, a creative job, a drawing made especially for them, a poem learned by heart or a song.
