April 10 is National Sibling Day, a day dedicated to celebrating the bond between siblings and recognizing the important role they play in our lives.
Growing up, like most of us, me and my siblings were each other’s best friends and worst enemies. As we got older, our relationship also matured, and we are now each others’ closest friends.
All this to say that siblings are often our first friends and confidants, and they can provide us with a lifetime of support and love.
According to National Today, National Sibling Day was first celebrated in 1995, when Claudia Evart created the holiday after losing her siblings at an early age.
Claudia Evart created the US holiday in 1995 after losing her brother and sister at a very early age. She realized what an important role siblings have in our lives, so she created the holiday to honor the memory of her siblings. For the holiday, Claudia chose April 10 — her late sister Lisette’s birthday. – National Today
Since then, it has become a popular holiday in many countries around the world. The day is meant to encourage people to appreciate and honor their siblings and to strengthen the bond between brothers and sisters.
There are many ways to celebrate National Sibling Day. Here are a few ideas:
Reach out to your siblings
If you haven’t spoken to your siblings in a while, National Sibling Day is the perfect time to reach out and reconnect. Send them a text, give them a call, or even plan a visit if you can. If that seems like too much work, just send them a message on social media, or forward a funny video to them. The important thing is to let them know you’re thinking about them.
Share old photos and memories
Take a trip down memory lane by sharing old photos and memories with your siblings. This is a great way to reminisce about your childhood and strengthen your bond. Personally I think the best memories to be shared are the most embarrassing ones from childhood!
Do something special together
Plan a special activity or outing with your siblings to celebrate the day. This could be something as simple as going out for lunch or dinner, or something more adventurous like going on a hike or taking a cooking class.
Give a thoughtful gift
Show your siblings how much you appreciate them by giving them a thoughtful gift. This could be something as simple as a card or a small token of appreciation, or something more meaningful like a piece of jewelry or a personalized gift. If all else fails, buying them a coffee always does the trick.
No matter how you choose to celebrate National Sibling Day, the most important thing is to take the time to appreciate and honor the special bond between siblings.
