What Is National Daughter’s Day?


Wondering what National Daughter’s Day is? It’s totally a day, all about celebrating your baby girl. In a world where we take the time to celebrate literally everything and anything, making sure that we mark this day on our calendars is important! 


Because let’s face it…Having a daughter in your life is a special feeling. A special bond between a mom and a daughter or a dad and a daughter or a caregiver and a daughter that can never be broken. 

Caring for a daughter is one of the best feeling in the world. (minus the teen tantrums, right?!) 

When is National Daughter’s Day?

This day only comes once a year so celebrate it loud and proud!

National Daughter’s Day falls on September 25th! 

When did this special day become a thing?

Good question. (And honestly, who comes up with these days?) National Daughter’s Day started all the way back in 1936 when a child basically asked the simple question of “Why is there no day to celebrate kids?” and just like that, the kids got their own day.
