Senior Citizens Day is held annually on August 21st, which is a day to recogonize the contributions older people have made and continue to make to our society.
The day is celebrated by giving thanks and possibly providing support to older people in our communitites. Also to recognize the achievements and contirbutions senior citizens have made. Families will often provide a gift or have some sort of celebration focused around the seniors they have in their family. Senior Citizens Day is not a federal national holiday but rather an observance to recognize and be supportive of our senior citizens.
Under then President Ronald Regan in 1988, he declared August 21st of each year to be Senior Citizens Day. Prior to 1988 when the day was created, some people already celebrared a similiar day on August 14 as Senior Day because thats the day Franklin Roosevelt signed the Social Security Act in 1935.
