It's nearly here! The 7th Annual Auntie's Day is Sunday, July 26! It's the day I founded in 2009 to honor and celebrate aunts and godmothers - and all women who love children-not-their-own.
We have lots of ideas for how to celebrate and why to celebrate here. We have also created Auntie's Day 2015 posters and eCards for you to post, share and send! When posting to your social networks, please use #AuntiesDay to help spread the word!
And yes, it's official. Auntie's Day is listed in Chase's Calendar of Events - the national calendar of holidays and commemorations (sadly, now behind a firewall.)
Whether or not you celebrate with, or are celebrated by, your nieces and nephews on Sunday, July 26 (and every fourth Sunday in July!) I celebrate you and encourage you to celebrate all the ways you contribute to a child's life.
Aunthood is a gift. It's a gift to the children (both literally and figuratively!). It's a gift to the parents (who often need all the support they can get!) It's a gift to you - the aunt - for all the ways aunthood fills our lives with love, joy and meaning.
Aunthood is a gift. This day is yours.
Happy Auntie's Day!
