8 October - Grandmothers' Day in Germany
Grandma's Day or Grandmother's Day is a day of honor and remembrance observed in many parts of the world. In Germany it takes place on the second Sunday in October.
The day honors the voluntary and unpaid work in the family as caregivers, cultural mediators and advisors. As a link between the generations, they often organize cohesion and exchange between family members. In order to adequately reward this achievement, Ursula von der Leyen called for an official grandparents' day back in 2008.
The first Germany-wide Grandma-Opa Day was celebrated annually on November 12 in the GDR before the fall of communism in 1989. The idea came from the children's magazine "Bummi".
