Spoil Grandma This Sunday

Spoil your grandma this weekend with a soy lotion candle to celebrate National Grandparents Day. Grandmas everywhere work their fingers to the bone and deserve some pampering that soy candles can provide.

National Grandparents Day is Sunday, September 13, 2009.

This is my beautiful grandma, Evelyn.

“The impetus for a National Grandparents Day originated with Marian McQuade, a housewife in Fayette County, West Virginia. Her primary motivation was to champion the cause of lonely elderly in nursing homes. She also hoped to persuade grandchildren to tap the wisdom and heritage their grandparents could provide. President Jimmy Carter, in 1978, proclaimed that National Grandparents Day would be celebrated every year on the first Sunday after Labor Day.”
