Uncles and aunts are fun to spend time with. They are just like parents except without the rules and regulations. They buy you gifts that your parents won't, dote on you, take you on fun vacations, and they are a huge part of your support system. So, celebrate your uncles and aunts on Uncle and Aunt Day.

In many western cultures, the term uncle and aunt is reserved for close family members, related by marriage or through genetics. This is in contrast to several other cultures, especially in Africa, Asia, and the Middle East, where anyone who is from the generation of one's parent is referred to as an uncle or an aunt.

How to Celebrate?

  • Call your uncles and aunts or visit them to wish them a happy day.
  • Make them a nice meal or take them out to thank them for all the fun things you have done with them and learned from them.
