The history of this Nationally recognized day started in 1969 when a young nine year old boy, Russell Capper wrote a letter to President Nixon asking to make a special day for Grandparents. Russell received a thank you note back but it said these types of special observance days needed to be authorized by Congress. However, a housewife from West Virginia, Marian McQuade, kept up her fight for a national  holiday to honor grandparents and finally won her cause in 1978. In 1977, Senator Randolph, with the help of other senators, introduced a joint resolution to the senate requesting the president to “issue annually a proclamation designating the first Sunday of September after Labor Day of each year as ‘National Grandparents’ Day’.” Congress passed the legislation, proclaiming the first Sunday after Labor Day as National Grandparent’s Day. On August 3, 1978,  President Jimmy Carter signed the proclamation to designate the first Sunday after Labor Day as National Grandparents Day. This day was cited as a day to "to honor grandparents, to give grandparents an opportunity to show love for their children's children, and to help children become aware of strength, information, and guidance older people can offer". Today there are variations of Grandparents Day in numerous countries around the world. This Grandparent's Day shop with Flowerama Columbus for the perfect floral gift to make your grandparents smile!
