National Visit Your Relatives Day is commemorated on May 18 of every year. National Visit Your Relatives Day is a day to visit your relatives. Visiting your family members is something that often falls by the wayside when schedules are hectic, and some people wish they could see their family more often.
“Just because you have a disagreement with your friends or family members does not mean there are not plenty of other areas on which you see eye to eye. It just means you have a difference of opinion.” – Victoria Osteen
