April 10th is National Siblings Day! We celebrate Mothers Day and Fathers Day so why not Siblings Day? Siblings Day has been recognized in other parts of the world for thousands of years, and is an established holiday in Northern India and several South Asian countries, but only became an official U.S. holiday in 2008. So – if you can stop bickering for a few minutes – take some time to let your brothers and sisters know how much you love them today!
I’m the baby in the family — my brother Bob is the oldest and my sister Lee Ann is the just a year younger than my brother. But, we are very close and always have been. I attribute that to our parents who encouraged us to take care of each other.
