Gorgeous Grandma Day
On July 23rd Gorgeous Grandma Day recognizes all women of a certain age whether they are grandmothers or not.
Not all women become grandmothers. Those who do, don’t necessarily fit the traditional mold any longer.Others still reach a point where many assume grandmother status, even though no grandchildren are about. Gorgeous Grandma Day embraces the age of the nana and encourages all women to flaunt their granny attitudes with purpose and style.
While some grandmas fit the traditional mold with gray hair and cookie-baking, home-making, hug-giving, child-spoiling energy to spare, many grannies sport a whole new role. Many take to the part of grandma to the children in their lives.
No matter the type of grandmother they are, they’re all different. Some play the hippest games, wear the latest styles and know how to find the best deals on technology. Even the grandkids can’t keep up! Funny, sassy and energetic grandmas, rebel grannies and smart grannies make the grade, too.
In many scenarios, grandmother-types step into the role where no grandmother remains. These women lend ears, laps, and hugs, much like the nanas of memory. Of course, they build foundations and set young men and women on their course.
Nearly all of these fantastic women pass down family traditions while teaching children to stand on our own. Full of wisdom and wit, what would anyone do without their nanas? They go by many names, but they’re all gorgeous in their own way.
On Gorgeous Grandma Day, let the grandmothers in your life know how much they mean to you.
