Familial Feasts…

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Familial Feasts.”

If I could honor or dedicate a holiday to someone other than mother and father’s day and I think there’s Grandparent’s day already. I think there should be more for the grandparents… so many grandparents are now playing the role of fathers and mothers well past the time they should be. They are denied familial rights when divorced and often caught in the middle of battles when children are used as pawns and to punish the other parent.

I’d make it so that grandparents got to spend time with the grandkids if they wanted, and a day off if they serve as parents. Flowers and weird old people diabetic candies… with cards and a day of pampering. People cooking for them and taking care of the grandparents.

If the grandparents are parents too, then it would be a chance to relax and get whatever makes them happy.

  1. I agree – a day dedicated to Grandparents would be much appreciated. I was extraordinarily close to one of my great-grandmothers (the people in my family tend to live for a looooong time), and it would’ve been great to have had a day beyond Mother’s Day to recognize her for all that she’s done for the entire family

      1. I just discovered that Grandparents Day is the first Sunday after Labor Day. I had no idea! I don’t think I know anyone who celebrates it. I agree with you though, there should definitely be more.
