The bond between grandparents and grandchildren is something special, which many of us cherish throughout the life. They are the loving pillars of comfort and support for many of us, and to honour them, National Grandparents' Day has been celebrated in the United States since 1978.
The day is celebrated on the first Sunday after the US Labor Day, which is observed on the first Monday in September. This year, the special day falls on Sunday, 13 September.
US President Barack Obama has saluted all grandparents with this presidential proclamation released on 11 September.
"On National Grandparents Day, we honor the sacrifices they make and continue to show our affection and appreciation for them. I call upon all Americans to take the time to honour their own grandparents and those in their community," Obama writes.
