“The uncles, aunts and cousins, it is well. Parents, it is not to be overlooked. But a grandmother is all!” In stating this, the writer american Fanny Fern would have probably never missed the feast of the great-grandmothers. As every first Sunday of march for the past 32 years, our grandmothers are honored at this end of the week.

That said party, said critics: “It is a business opportunity”. This is the counterpoint often argued. The pro-grandmothers start with a handicap: no census of the celebration by the law, nor the code of social action and of families. It is the brand of the coffee grandmother, who, in 1987, launched this celebration dedicated to our good-mom to celebrate the twenty years of the brand. But this is an opportunity to pay tribute to our elders. If you want to make them happy, here is a selection of activities to do as a family this weekend.
