Saint Anne and Saint Joachim Day 2023
Grandparents' Day is celebrated in Spain on July 26, coinciding with Saint Anne and Saint Joaquin , parents of the Virgin Mary and maternal grandparents of Jesus of Nazareth, patron saints of all grandparents .
In countries with a Christian culture, Grandparents' Day is part of the Catholic tradition , a commemorative day dedicated to the elderly.
Thus, July 26 is a day to pay special attention to the elderly. A day to honor their life, recognize the care work they do, especially with their grandchildren, after having raised their children.
And it is so, the years have passed, society has changed, customs, the rhythm of life, now we are busier and more stressed, it seems that the days go by faster and for those of us who are parents, we don't get the hours to take care of everything, including our children. And for this reason, we always ask our parents, now grandparents, to give us a hand.
For this reason, Grandparents' Day is an anniversary to remember all the older people who are a vital part of our families.
And there is no better date than July 26, which is included in the national holiday calendar and which comes from the Catholic saints , remembering the parents of the Virgin Mary, Santa Ana and San Joaquín, grandparents of Jesus Christ.
