Sorry about the amazing and captivating tittle of this post! I tried a few others, tried to get those creative juices flowing, some were subtle, some vague, some oblique; but they did not say what …

National Senior Citizen Day

In 1988, then President Ronald Reagan, proclaimed that from that day forward, August 21st, would be National Senior Citizen Day. A day we would set aside to acknowledge the valuable contributions of the senior citizens of this country.

Companies, churches, civic groups and communities are holding special events all day, today, to pay homage to the senior citizens in their area. Everything from meals, to award ceremonies to discounts are being presented by the grateful people who understand the value of life’s experience. Life long contributions are being recognized and rightfully so…

So, at what age do we become “seniors”? If we measure this by the requirements of The Social Security Administration, here in the United States, then we must reach the age of 65 before we can be considered senior citizens. That is the age when we can retire with full benefits. However, one can retire anytime after attaining the age of 62 (receiving reduced benefits of course). AARP (the American Association of Retired Persons) recognizes anyone over the age of 50 as a senior citizen.

Be sure to inquire of any service provider, store or institution if they offer a “senior discount” and you may be pleasantly surprised! As I am about to reach the age of 60, I have found that I can receive discounts on food, purchases at drug stores, as well enjoy special pricing for the movies, auto repairs and travel expenses, just to name a few. Some of the places ask for proof of age, others just take your word for it

(I am not sure if that is a compliment, eh. At least make me think that YOU don’t think I look my age.)

Make a phone call, give a hug, spend some time with a special senior in your life, not only today but everyday. It means the world to them and will help put a bright spot in your life as well.

Happy National Senior Citizen Day, everyone!
