They were there when you took your first steps, when you moved into your college dorm, and when you walked down the aisle on your wedding day. Yup, we’re of course talking about your parents! Needless to say, they’ve been there through it all, so it seems only right that they deserve a little something extra this weekend, in honor of National Parents’ Day.
A Bit About Parents’ Day
The United Nations may have proclaimed June 1 to be Global Parents’ Day, but hey, don’t our parents deserve two days? In 1994, President Bill Clinton declared the fourth Sunday of July to be Parents’ Day, for “recognizing, uplifting, and supporting the role of parents in the rearing of children.”
