Siblings day, usually held on the 10th of April is a holiday that celebrates siblings relationships.

April 10th is fast approaching, and you should probably be calling your siblings to hatch up a plan on how to spend the day. Siblings are an incredible gift from God and anyone who has a brother or sister should not let the day just pass by without celebrating them.

I lost a younger sibling a year ago. Life has never been — and will never be — the same. I have pored over his baby photos, elementary school photos, high school photos and beyond. I want to remember his laugh and his smile. I treasure the last voicemail he left me. We didn’t need a Siblings Day to know how much we meant to each other.

I told him I loved him once and replied, “I know, but it’s nice to hear.”

Tell your siblings you love them. Do not wait!

Unfortunately, siblings day is not recognized by federal governments and the day is therefore not necessarily a national holiday. That means you’ll have to wake up and get to work just like any other day. However, that is not a reason not to celebrate it. You can always take time off your busy schedule and get together with your siblings for some quality time.

America has been proactive in trying to get the day recognized as a national holiday by federal governments. 49 states in the United States have been in the forefront pushing for this agenda. India and Australia have also made inroads in getting the day marked appropriately.

The siblings day organization has also made tremendous efforts to get this important holiday recognized. The holiday is an invention of one Claudia Evart, who invented it in a bid to celebrate the lives of her sister and brother who had died while still young. It is not every day that we get to be with our siblings especially when we grow up. Get involved in the national siblings day and take time to appreciate your brother or sister.
