National Siblings Day!
Today is the day we celebrate our siblings. Give one of yours a call today, even if they don’t owe you money!
Believe it or not, there is a movement to establish Siblings Day as a nationally recognized holiday, like Mother’s Day and Father’s Day.
According to siblingsday.org, Siblings Day is a day where brothers and sisters reflect upon each other; enjoy time together or a phone call; in some cases, a day of truce and more understanding; or for others a day of love and appreciation. Claudia Evart chose that date to honor the memory of her late sister’s birthday, Lisette. Siblings Day follows the spirit of Mother’s Day, Father’s Day and Grandparent’s Day – a great American tradition and celebration of family-unit values. It is an uplifting celebration honoring people who have shaped our values, beliefs and ideals. Siblings Day strengthens the family unit by reminding us that a bond with our siblings can be forever a special gift.
Unfortunately, some of come from rather fractured families that don’t communicate well. Or, we could be like the Kardashians.
But, if you feel the need, reach out to your siblings. It might be fun!
