July 23 is the official celebration date of Happy National Gorgeous Grandma Day in the United States. This holiday is not just about celebrating those women who have the delight of being a grandma. It is about recognizing all women of a certain age, no matter whether they have grandchildren or not. After all, there are a lot of women who would love nothing more than to have grandchildren, yet they have not been able to.
National Gorgeous Grandma Day, was started on all phrase Gorgeous Grandma. Alice Solomon is credited for this. She graduated from Wellesley College in 1984 at the age of 50-years-old.
Alice felt that society saw her and other females of her age or older as no longer relevant or useful. She made it her mission to change this notion. This is when she coined the phrase of Gorgeous Grandma. She recognized that the term grandma was attributed to older females, irrespective of whether they were a grandmother or not.
She thought that the thing to do was to embrace the term—though she added the adjective gorgeous. By adding gorgeous it would create a notice me and snappy image, which would be ideal for celebrating the older woman. She then decided to create National Gorgeous Grandma Day in an attempt to get rid of all of the typical stereotypes that surround older women, showing them that there is still a lot they can offer.
Celebrate the day by taking your Gorgeous Grandma shopping and by sending her a card writing how much she means to you.
No matter how you celebrate with your Grandma, be sure it is a great day with family and friends.
