Tomorrow, August 21st is National Senior Citizen Day. I’m sure you know a few senior citizens, let’s take a moment to honor our elders.
Take a moment to think – who are some important senior citizens in your life? Maybe your parents or even your grandparents are still with us, perhaps you have an elderly neighbor, friend, teacher, or other person in your life that you would like to celebrate on Senior Citizen Day.
Do you know where the term “senior citizen” started? It was actually started during a 1938 political campaign as a euphemism for “elder person,” and is now known everywhere. Some dictionaries define the term “senior citizen” as a person over the age of 65.
Legally, the term senior citizen applies to the age at which pensions, social security or medical benefits for the elderly become available. Here in the USA, traditionally people have been eligible to retire with full Social Security benefits at age 65. Additionally, one can retire early at age 62 and receive a portion of their retirement benefits.
Now that we have defined the term, let’s think of ways that we can show appreciation to our oldest of friends and family. You could get them a card, of course. Everyone appreciates a card now and then. Flowers are always appreciated as well, especially by the ladies.
Another way that you could show your favorite senior how much you love them is to come over and cook dinner for them. How about bringing over some delicious steaks and grilling them for your parents or grandparents? DealDash always has some grills up for auction.
