National Aunts and Uncles Day is celebrated annually on July 26 to honor the extended family members who are like a second set of parents.

Aunts and uncles hold an extraordinary place in our hearts as they fill our lives with fun, love and incredible memories.

To celebrate this day, spend time with your parents’ siblings and show them some extra love and care. This day is all about thanking them for their presence in our lives. Remind your favorite aunt or uncle how much you appreciate them with a special quote.
