"Perfect love sometimes does not come until the first grandchild." Welsh Proverb
Any grandparent will tell you that their life changed the day that their first grandchild was born. In fact, 75% of grandparents report that being Nana or Pop-Pop has been the single most fulfilling experience of their life. For their part, children adore their grandparents, and kids who grow up with the older generation involved in their lives turn out to be more confident and self-reliant adults.
With so much good coming from the relationship, it is no wonder that Congress established National Grandparents Day in 1978. The purpose of the day is not commercial; instead, the vision was that multi-generational families would gather, share stories and traditions, and learn from each other. In this way, individual family legacies would be preserved and celebrated. Of course, it is also a wonderful opportunity to show love and gratitude to two of the most special people in the world - and Peoples Flowers has the Grandparents Day floral arrangements that will make the day unforgettable.
