Siblings Day

The day to celebrate one of the most valuable bonds, siblingship, has finally arrived. Every year, the day is celebrated globally in a bid to celebrate a person's first best friend in life, the one whom they grew up with, one who is aware of each of our little secrets, the one who stood by us through tough times and is our go-to person at any moods.

Siblings Day began to be observed globally on April 10th every year to mark the celebration of the bond shared by siblings with one another.

The day holds significance as it focuses on the importance of the presence of siblings in each other's life, from playing jokes on each other to supporting each other. 

However, many think of this bond as a bitter-sweet one. Meanwhile, many countries like India, Canada, the United States, and the United Kingdom celebrate Siblings Day.

Origin of Siblings Day

It is believed that Claudia Evert, the founder, and director of the Siblings Day Foundation and Siblings Day, initiated the celebration in the United States on her sister Lisette’s birth anniversary as she wanted to commemorate the memory of her brother and sister who died at an early age.

The day was officially recognized in the year 1997 and ever since then, the foundation worked towards spreading awareness worldwide on the special day which honors the love and sacrifices our siblings make for us.

Significance of Siblings Day

Considering that it is the day for siblings and the most beautiful bond, the significance of the day is to remind them that we value every effort they make for us in our lives.

Raksha Bandhan is another occasion that is celebrated by Indians to celebrate the bond between brothers and sisters. Siblings are everything, they are the best companions, best secret keepers, best support system all in one person.

Is it better to be the older sibling or the younger sibling? We bet we know what each one would say, but in honor of National Siblings Day, we’re taking a look at the advantages of both. 

Older siblings might actually be know-it-alls. A study from Norway has shown that, on average, the oldest siblings have an IQ that’s 2.3 points higher than the rest of the bunch.

And it’s not just brains. Another study found that the oldest sibling is on average the most ambitious and most successful, too-- meaning it really is better to be a Beyonce than a Solange.

One reason older siblings might be more likely to reach for the stars? They’re taller, literally, with one study showing that younger siblings are on average shorter than their older brothers or sisters.

But it’s not always better to be older. Studies show that younger siblings tend to be funnier and more creative, though we bet some of your older siblings might disagree. There is one thing that’s harder to debate: On average, younger siblings live longer.

It probably won’t surprise you to read that younger sibling tend to be more rebellious. That might come from wanting to be different from their older siblings, but it might just come from already being blamed for everything anyway.

Even if they can sometimes be a pain, one thing’s for sure: we wouldn’t be the same without our siblings.

Siblings, you love them, you can’t stand them, they’re the best people in the world, and the most annoying. National Siblings Day is observed on April 10 to celebrate the bond between siblings.

The holiday was founded in 1995 by Claudia Evart after the death of her lost her two siblings. The date coincides with her late sister’s birthday to spread the value and importance of having a sibling. 

Whether you have a close relationship with your siblings or prefer to see them only on special occasions, National Siblings Day marks the perfect time to celebrate the bond that is like no other.
