What is Parents Day?
Parents Day has officially been a national holiday since 1994, and is all about family (no matter what faith or background you come from). You can even nominate your parents to win Parents of the Year! Parents Day is meant to show your appreciation for your parents and all the hard work they do in your family and in your community.
