2cnd Annual Auntie Day

Last year, the Costopoulos family launched a new tradition: Aunts Day. Henceforth the last Sunday in May will be Auntie Day. We have Mother's Day, Father's Day, Grandparents Day and all manners of Days...but no one has thought about aunts. Yet when I look at my celibate daughters doting over their nephew and niece, the love and devotion they have for those kids, I say it is high time to do something to honor that aspect of familyhood. So next Sunday we wil have the Aunts Special Dinner, Alexis (14) and Arianne (3) will be , hopefully, on their best behaviour and mom, dad, brother, sister-in-law will pitch toghether to get them  something they wil love.  Pass the word around, celibate aunties are a  forgotten and neglected part of our society. Let's right the wrong.
