Respect for the Aged Day 敬老の日 (Keiro no hi)

Keiro no hi 敬老の日 “Respect for the Aged Day” is a Japanese holiday Seniorscelebrated on the 3rd Monday of September to honor elderly citizens. Keiro no Hi was established as a national holiday in 1966 to express respect and gratitude for the elderly’s contributions to society, and celebrate their longevity. This day is also known as Seniors’ Day.

To honor their elders, many communities throw parties and offer special gifts to bring even more longevity to their lives. Young school children are especially encouraged to create handmade gifts for the occasion. In many neighborhoods, special musical or dance performance events are organized to entertain the community’s senior citizens.
