JAMESTOWN – It’s like Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, Grandparent’s Day, and every similar day combined, today is National Family Day.

National Day Calendar says the National Center on Addiction created the day back in 2001.






The organization’s interest comes from research showing teens who eat meals with their families, are less likely to abuse substances. They’re also healthier, and they do better in school.

Of course, not everyone has children and not all children have parents in their lives.





So, whatever your biological or chosen family looks like, Monday is a time to honor those you love.

Take a family photo and share it using #NationalFamilyDay.
