Grandparents' Day is a day to honour the relationship between grandchildren and grandparents. It's a day to share stories, have fun, and give thanks to our grandparents for everything that they bring to our lives. Grandparents' Day isn't just celebrated in South Africa - it's celebrated across the world on different dates. It's a day for children to spend time with their grandparents, so that they can share their strength, wisdom and guidance with the younger generation. The day takes place on a weekend to allow as many people as possible to spend quality time with their loved ones of all generations.
Grandparents are the custodians of our memories, cultures and traditions of our families. Investing in our memory bank is about investing in the relationships we have with our grandparents.
