Respect of the Aged Day

I got this off Facebook today and thought it was a wonderful thing, so I decided to share it here.
Today is Respect of the Aged Day in Japan. It was established as a national holiday in 1966 to recognize and thank the elders in the community for their contributions and celebrate their lives. What do you do to recognize your older family members or neighbors?
