Celebrating Grandparents’ DayEach year on September 13, we celebrate a wonderful holiday that honors the grandest of people in our families and lives. Grandparents Day is one of our favorite holidays here at ScanMyPhotos, but sometimes the day will sneak right past everyone without much notice or fanfare.
If you forgot to do something special for your Noni or PapPap, it’s not too late! You can give them the gift of preservation by sending a ScanMyPhotos e-gift certificate their way. It’ll be a great way to honor their legacy and memory for generations to come.

Photography Tip How to Use Your
In order to make sure your photos don’t look as fuzzy as a Big Foot picture, you’ll need to determine which shutter speed is best for your picture. Use Shutter Priority mode to start and then increase or decrease shutter speed as needed.
Not sure what to give the grandparent who has everything? Load up a digital picture frame with a ton of smiling photos of you and the family, and give it to your grandparents to proudly display on their mantel.

Grandparents Day is just around the corner, falling on Sunday, September 7 this year. To celebrate we pulled together some fun facts that you might not know about the holiday. We’re also topping them all off with one general fact about grandparents that may help you give them the best gift ever.
When it comes to Grandparents Day, did you know…
- There’s an official song. The U.S. has an official Grandparents Day song called A Song for Grandma and Grandpa, by Johnny Prill. We wouldn’t expect anything less for the two people who always make sure the grandkids have plenty of hugs, candy, and fun.
- There’s also an official flower. Forget-Me-Nots are the officially recognized flower for Grandparents Day. While the flowers’ namesake is a nice sentiment, there’s one small issue—Forget-Me-Nots typically bloom in the spring, but the holiday happens in the fall. Not to worry though, Grams and Gramps will be more than happy to receive any type of flower that’s in season. It is, after all, the thought that counts.
- This U.S. holiday is almost 40 years old. President Carter designated the first Grandparents Day on September 10, 1978. His goal was to encourage all citizens to plan activities that will recognize the many contributions grandparents have made to our lives. Pretty sweet, huh?
- The holiday always lands on the Sunday after Labor Day. This nifty little fact makes the holiday a bit easier to remember. Combine this factoid with the official flower, and it should now be a breeze to remember when Grandparents Day happens each year.
