Why It Didn't Take Off[edit]

I'd like to know exactly why Grandparents Day didn't go over. I've always assumed it was because grandparents were already covered by Father's Day and Mother's Day. That it seemed unnecessary to just have a holiday for them, even though other cultures practically worship their elders.—Preceding unsigned comment added by 67.188.172.165 (talkcontribs)

apostrophe?[edit]

Father’s day recognizes one’s father. Mother’s day recognizes one’s mother. Grandparents day recognizes one’s grandparents (not one’s grandparent). So, in order to make it consistent with the other holidays, shouldn’t it be called “Grandparents’ Day”? RdCrestdBreegull (talk) 18:41, 2 September 2008 (UTC)

Grandparents Day in the United Kingdom[edit]

Grandparents Day has reached the United Kingdom. Today is our first ever one. Do you think we should put this in?

OTD[edit]

Per the rules at WP:OTD, this article is going to be excluded from Wikipedia:Selected anniversaries/September 11 this year because it has a maintenance tag on it. To ensure that it appears, please resolve the issues described by the tag. You have over 5 weeks to go, so hopefully that should be more than enough time. Thanks. howcheng {chat} 19:10, 1 August 2011 (UTC)

Grandparents Day and 9/11[edit]

I sent a letter to President Obama requesting that he support the change of Grandparents Day to the third Sunday of September so that it would no longer coincide with September 11, but judging from the reply I received I'm assuming he never got my message.
