To All The Aunties: Here’s To You

National Auntie’s Day honors the childfree women who take on a special role in loving and caring for our kids

Whether you’re related or have been friends with them for so long that now they’re stuck with you, every family has at least one Auntie, the women in our children’s lives who don’t have kids themselves but love your kids like their own. Now there’s a special day to let them know just how much we appreciate all they do for us and our kids. In 2009, Melanie Notkin, aka SavvyAuntie, established the fourth Sunday in July as National Auntie’s Day, a day to celebrate these women who take on an active and important role in our kid’s lives. Notkin refers to them as professional aunts, no kids or “PANKs”.
