grandparentsday National Grandparents Day Twitter Party

National Grandparent’s Day (September 13th) is one of the most overlooked and neglected days of the year. While I’m sure more people recognize the day much more than other “national days of celebration” like for instance, Flag Day or Secretary Appreciation Day (no, I’m not making this up,) National Grandparent’s Day is one of those days that a great deal of people do not even know exists in the first place. Because of this, and MomSelect have teamed up to kick off a celebration for Grandparent’s Day by holding a Twitter party.

I have a unique respect for grandparents and more specifically, my grandmother, whom I have to thank for my deep understanding and passion for Democratic politics and the women’s liberation movement. I credit my grandmother solely for giving me the Lincoln Logs to build onto my own modern-day feminist activism. I come from a so-called “unconventional family,” being raised by my father, grandmother and aunt. My grandmother and aunt have always been and still remain to be the mother figures in my life, giving me that unique and unwavering respect for all that grandparents around the country do for both their children and for their grandchildren. Because of my “unconventional family,” I am thrilled that and MomSelect have teamed up to dig National Grandparent’s Day out of the overlooked national days of celebration closet.

The Grandparent’s Day Twitter party will take place Thursday, September 10th from 8-9PM EST. The conversation will consist of swapping stories, sharing ideas and giving away great prizes that would make terrific Grandparent’s Day gifts. You can find the discussion on Twitter by searching for hashtag #grandparents. If you are planning on joining the Grandparent’s Day Twitter party, RSVP here.
