Visit Your Relatives Day is an international holiday who’s origins are uncertain, but possibly related to other days such as Grandparent’s Day, Mother’s Day, etc. As the name implies, it is meant to encourage family visits, especially among relatives who don’t get the chance to see each other very often. Historically it has been commemorated on the 18th of May.

Visiting family is something that often falls by the wayside when schedules are busy, and many people wish they could see family more often.

If a face-to-face visit isn’t practical, Visit Your Family Day can be celebrated by sending cards and letters to far-away family members, or making time for a phone call or internet chat. Planning a family reunion to coincide with Visit Your Family Day is another great idea. Many websites offer free e-cards to be sent to relatives on this family-oriented holiday.
