When is National Siblings Day?
Just like the well-known Mother Day, Father Day, Granny and Grandpa Days and other similar dates praising the members of the family, this one is meant for appreciating and honoring this sneaky fellow (or even fellows) you were forced to live with in one room for the long period of time. Oh, and share the toys with!
The observance came into this world at the initiative of the American woman, back in the 90’s, when she got inspired with the idea of revering the memory of her dearest brother and sister, who, alas, died many years ago. She established the special organization in support of the new holiday and went on to popularize the date all across the world. In fact, she did manage to gain the recognition: in 2005, it was mentioned during the session of the US Congress. On top of that, it got out of the motherland’s borders and now is known to at least a dozen of the European countries, each of which introduces its own local traditions of celebration.
As for the date, it was chosen for a reason. April 10th turned out to be the birthday of the author’s beloved sister. How do people celebrate? Well, they exchange presents, congratulate their buddies, gather in the parents’ house for the warm family evening and, of course, send at least one funny national Siblings day meme to each other. Just to remind of the great (and not so) time they’ve spent together in the childhood.

Everyone faced the situations when the older ones drove you crazy when the parents didn’t watch. For an instant, recorded your angry complaints and then listened and laughed out loud. As for you, you must have done something like crawling to the wardrobe with the scissors in hand and cutting out the flowers of your sister’s school uniform or letting the kitties out on the street and lumping the blame onto your brother who got the lion’s share of scolding!
