Respect for the Age Day

Respect for the Aged Day (敬老の日 Keirō no Hi) at Guanabana

Guanabana never misses out on a party and for that reason we our joining in this Japanese national holiday for the elders. Known as Seniors' Day, Respect of the Aged Day, or Keiro no Hi, it was established as a national holiday in 1966 to express respect for the elders in the community. The day is also seen as a recognition and thanks for their contributions to society whilst celebrating their longevity.
