the first Saturday after Labor Day
Today we honor aunts and celebrate the relationship they have with their nieces and nephews! Perhaps you have aunts who spoiled you when you were a child, bringing you special treats and gifts. Did they have a tradition where they took you somewhere every year, or did they influence you to get involved with a certain hobby? Maybe they took care of you sometimes and let you get away with things that your parents would have never let you get away with. Perhaps you have asked them for advice over the years, or they are someone you can talk to about your parents, as they know them better than most. Maybe you have special memories of them from holidays past. Whatever your relationship with them, or the impact they have had on your life, today is for honoring and celebrating them. If you are an aunt yourself, today is for you!
How to Observe
If you are a niece or nephew, honor your aunts today. Call them, send them a card, give them a gift, take them out for dinner, or spend the day with them. If you are an aunt, spend the day with your nieces and nephews, and don't forget to remind them that today is Aunt's Day!
