Visit Your Relatives Day
About Visit Your Relatives Day
When is Visit Your Relatives Day? This holiday is always celebrated on May 18
Visit Your Relatives Day encourages us to visit our family and loved ones. This May 18 holiday encourages us to get closer to our family members and to build (or re-build) family ties and relationships.
It’s easy to get out of touch with loved ones. Sometimes, we argue and fight. A little spat can blossom into a major issue. Other times, distance keeps us from seeing our parents or siblings more frequently. And, we lead busy lives. A visit with your family is sometimes limited to Christmas and a few other choice major holidays.
If you cannot 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.
