Summary
Just like Senior Citizens, this holiday never gets old - at heart!

The national holiday is recognized each year on August 21st as a way to celebrate the accomplishments of older members of the community. 

The day is observed officially from the year 1988. this day was officially established by the former president of the United States of America.

Ronald Regan was the first person to promulgate Senior Citizens Day. The promulgation said "For all they have achieved throughout life and for all they continue to accomplish, we owe older citizens our thanks and a heartfelt salute. We can best demonstrate our gratitude and esteem by making sure that our communities are good places in which to mature and grow older – places in which older people can participate to the fullest and can find the encouragement, acceptance, assistance, and services they need to continue to lead lives of independence and dignity.

Why do we celebrate National Senior Citizens Day?

Senior citizens make up a significant portion of our society; they reside on our streets, in our homes and neighborhoods, as well as in our schools and hospitals. They are the ones who ensure that there is enough food for all of us to eat, who battle for access to clean air and water, and who provide care for the sick and elderly.

Our seniors should be greeted and thanked today because they laid the groundwork for who we are now and who we will be tomorrow. They are essential to the productivity of our country, and the government should support initiatives that acknowledge their contributions. Many senior citizens are still employed, which benefits the economy and society as a whole.

Whether it be via their own experience or by giving back to the community, seniors are frequently in a position to assist others. They can actively give their time or offer advice and instruction to businesses and schools, as well as help with house upkeep and repairs. Seniors have a lot to contribute, but also require our assistance.
