Visit Your Relatives Day
Date When Celebrated: This holiday is always held on May 18
Visit Your Relatives Day encourages us to visit our relatives and loved ones. This day is intended to give us the opportunity to get closer to our relatives, and to build (or re-build) family ties and relationships.
It's easy to get out of touch with loved ones. We lead busy lives. A visit with the relative, is sometimes relegated to Christmas and a few other choice major holidays.
If you can not visit your relatives today, we suggest you call them and/or send them a card. Both snail mail and online cards will do.
Important Note: If you don't get to visit your mother-in-law today, you will have another chance on Mother-In-Law Day.
