Grandparents are increasingly involved with childcare and teaching younger generations important life lessons while offering moral guidance and support.
Teddington, Middlesex. (PRWEB) September 09, 2011
The population of the world has quadrupled in the past century, and a large portion of that growth is among senior citizens, meaning there are more Grandparents around than ever before. In light of this, Katies Cards have created their first Grandparents Day e-card to celebrate their essential role in society.
As life expectancies across the world are creeping up, there are more Grandparents and great Grandparents living longer who are taking an active part in supporting their young family members. Grandparents are increasingly involved with childcare and teaching younger generations important life lessons while offering moral guidance and support.
The Grandparents day holiday has been celebrated in the United States since 1978, originally to educate younger members of society about the important contributions that senior citizens have made to their lives. Now many years later, people see this day as a time to show their appreciation by sharing meals and sending cards and presents to their Grandparents. Grandparents Day is now celebrated around the world but on different dates. The United States observe the occasion on the 11th of September while those in the UK celebrate on the 2nd of October. The Australian state of Queensland was the first state to officially mark the day on the first Sunday in November 2010. Of all the days designated for celebrating a minority in society in recent years, Grandparents Day has to be the most pertinent and necessary.
The new Grandparents day ecard compliments the collection of over 165 e cards in the Katies Cards library, celebrating a variety of special occasions and international holidays. The card itself displays a childlike animation, accompanied by heart warming guitar music, symbolizing a child’s perspective of their own Grandparents. The cards’ message tells Grandparents that they are the ‘best in the world’, featuring illustrations of other child-like drawings; butterflies, ladybirds, trees and the sun. The perfect greeting to send to any Grandparent to show how much they are cared for and with all of Katies Cards e cards a personal message can be added at the end to give that extra special, personal touch.
