In 1978, President Jimmy Carter declared the first Sunday after Labor Day to be National Grandparents Day with the help of Marian McQuade. She proposed the day to honor grandparents, to give them an opportunity to show love for their children's children and to help the younger generation become aware of the strength, information and guidance older people can offer.
