Grandparents play a crucial role in most families, and in 1978 the government chose to set aside a day to celebrate grandparents. The holiday, proposed by Senators Jennings Randolph and Robert Byrd, was approved by President Jimmy Carter. The stated purpose of the holiday is “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.” If you have grandparents in your life that you wish to honor this Grandparents Day, consider sending the gift of flowers. Conklyn’s provides flower delivery nationwide, so you can honor your grandparents no matter where they live.
The Official Flower of Grandparents Day
Grandparents Day has an official flower, and it’s an appropriate choice. The official flower of the holiday is the forget-me-not, which shows the love and dedication that grandkids have for their grandparents. While typically a spring flower, forget-me-nots can be a great gift for the September holiday because of the meaning behind these blooms and their nostalgic name.
