National Aunt and Uncle's Day July 26

National Aunt and Uncle’s Day – July 26


Aunt and Uncle’s Day is celebrated annually on July 26th.  Spending holidays together, special family times and sometimes sleepovers, aunts and uncles often form a special place in our hearts and fill our lives with fun, laughter, love and wonderful memories.  They are people we can turn to and trust and we know that they will be there for us.

Today we are thankful for our moms and dads, brothers and sisters and want to let them know that and just how special they are to us and the important part they play in our lives.  It would be a good time to get out the old photograph albums and look through the pictures, reliving memories of earlier days around the Christmas tree or at the 4th of July picnic or maybe at the beach vacation that was spent with your special aunts and uncles.


To celebrate National Aunt and Uncle’s Day, give them a call, stop by for a visit, send them a card or a bouquet of flowers or maybe take them out for a nice dinner. Take photos with them and post them on social media using #AuntAndUnclesDay


Within our research, we were unable to find the creator or the origin of National Aunt and Uncle’s Day, an “unofficial” national holiday.

    Sounds good to me, if they play a good role in the niece or nephews life.

    My oldest bro Rick Patton who lives in San Francisco , Ca. several years ago came up with Aunt & Uncles Day at a family BBQ in Modesto , Ca. He felt the need for aunts & uncles to have there day of recognition . He said the 3rd weekend in July should be set aside for Aunt& Uncles day for all those aunties and uncles who do so much for their nieces & nephews . As a family we have been celebrating this as a family holiday for well over 15 years and since the beginning of face book we have posted it every year so others will observe & share in our family tradition .
