Happy National Siblings Day 2023!
Each year on April 10 we show some extra love and care to our brother or sister. Why? Even though the siblings have a bitter-sweet relationship, they are the ones we have most of the childhood memories with. Let us know how this day started?
This day started after a tragic incident. According to NationalDayCalendar.com,The foundation of National Siblings Day was done by a woman named Claudia Evart. In 1995 she lost her two siblings in separate accidents to whom she couldn’t even bid bye.To emphasise the importance of siblings in our lives she chose April 10 in honour of her late sister’s birthday. We don’t really get to be with our siblings everyday especially after growing up due to work and busy schedules.
You can love, hate, fight with your siblings but at the end of the day they’re family and we can not live without them. And each year, Siblings Day seeks to rebuild and appreciate the special bond which is between brothers and sisters.
It is quite visible as per recent statistics that there are plenty of people around the world who would take part in this celebration. In America alone, It is noticed that when Siblings Day started, around 80 percent of children had at least one sibling. Whereas in the UK there are more four-child families than in most other European countries.
