2 October - National Grandparents Day in Italy
Grandparents' Day is a civil holiday widespread in some areas of the world, celebrated in honor of grandparents and their social influence. Why is Grandparents' Day celebrated on October 2? October 2 is the day on which the Catholic Church celebrates the Guardian Angels, who just like grandparents protect and guard children.
In Italy, Grandparents' Day was established as a civil holiday for October 2 each year by Law No. 159 of July 31, 2005, as a time to celebrate the importance of the role played by grandparents within families and society in general. The law also establishes the "National Award of the Grandfather and Grandmother of Italy," which the President of the Republic assigns annually to ten grandparents, based on a ranking compiled by the special commission of the Ministry of Labor and Social Policies and the Ministry of Education, University and Research. The task of promoting initiatives to enhance the role of grandparents, on the occasion of this date, is by law the responsibility of regions, provinces and municipalities.
