National Siblings Day

What you will get to know here

We love them, hate them, fight with them, share the most precious memories, compete with them for the silliest reasons, but, most importantly, we cannot live without them. We are talking about one of most crucial member of our family- our siblings.  

Siblings are our best friends and sometimes, our worst enemies. Our siblings encourage us to be our best, be our biggest motivator and sometimes, be our biggest competitor. But, everyone should take this competition in a healthy manner .

When is Siblings Day?

Siblings Day is celebrated every year on April 10. This day remember us the importance of having siblings in our life to whom, we can share every problem of our life.

It is generally said that after our parents, there are only and only our siblings who can guide and help us just like our parents. 

National Siblings Day: History

In year 1995, Claudia Evart, a U.S. citizen, lost her brother and sister, at a very early age. Then, she named April 10 as ‘National Siblings Day’. In the memory of her dead sister, whose birthday falls on April 10, Evart started celebrating the day as Siblings Day to honor the bond between the siblings.
