April 10th is National Sibling Day!


Its the 10th and that means it National Sibling Day. This day is a US creation, and it’s one i have been celebrating for years.

I have been blessed to have the full works - the sisters who tormented me growing up. The brothers who just never got that i could actually climb a tree better than they could, and all the other kids who you wish would never go home who just thought everything at your house was just so cool.

I am close to them all and over the years , the tormenters has become understanding shoulders to cry on, to thump when i have to vent but most importantly knowing that those shoulders are always there.

The brothers who dared me to do the stupidest things, have become my biggest supporters pushing me and encouraging me to new heights, even if sometimes they genuinely didn’t get what  i was on about.

The friends who thought my house was so cool, still think my house is still cool, and i would not have it any other way and they are the brothers and sisters of my heart.

I have already did my ring rounds, teased a few of them, cheered a few and even made a few cry, but all in all i just love them all.

The one that stood out is my brother calling me at 3.40 am to whisper in my phone - “I love you the bestest of them all” – I was in tears.

The brother that dared me to jump from a tree at 10yrs old - he’s now 31.


If you have never heard of this day, start a new trend in your family. Pick your phone up and call your siblings now, send a bunch of flowers or a card, even send a special blessing there way or if you are sibling less – HAPPY SIBLING DAY TO YOU.

If you celebrate this day along with millions of others – HAPPY SIBLING DAY TO YOU

One of my favourite body of work… From me to you >

I've never heard of Sibling Day! But I have only one sister and April 10th is her birthday! I'll call her again, this time to wish her a happy Sibling Day!

Hi EH!

What a way to start the day! I'm in the US and have never heard of this day...I'm the oldest of seven and I call all my sisters and my one lonely brother all the time (my brother dared me to jump of the roof of our garage--nearly busted my leg--loved him still).

Happy Sibling Day!!

Dottie :)

What a fantastic post E.H.! I loved reading about your siblings and friends. :)

I have one brother and we've been at odds practically since his birth (I'm the eldest). No two people could ever be more different. Now that he's 23, things have finally started to get better between us but unfortunately, we'll never be really close. Well, maybe. As he gets older, we've begun to understand each other more. I haven't totally given up hope.

Have a great weekend!

Hey Dottie,

It was a most beautiful way to start to start my day - and the day is not done yet...

I am oldest of the lot myself, and my siblings and i are quite tight including the ones of my heart and i can't imagine it any other way.

Hey VFG..

My brothers and I are tight now and have been for the past couple of years - but there was a time in my late teen and early 20's that my parents thought we would not live to make it to thirty....

But one of them is the brother that Love me the "bestest" and I love him the "bestest" right back.

Don't give up on him and yourself, keep trying it's worth it...

I never knew about this holiday! And here I have 5 brothers and sisters! They must not know either, since I haven't heard from one of them! LOL! We're spread out all over the country, so mostly we communicate by email, sometimes by phone, when my sister and I want to rag about our bossy mother!

Thanks for the info!

Hey Julie...

I know we all talk to our sibling some people more than other, but it's nice to have a day all set aside for that...

I hope you picked the phone up and gave them al la call.

Hey Barbara...

I realise not a lot of people knows about his day - but I am glad even if a only one person takes it on board.

Thanks for noticing the banner, can't settle on anything yet, so i will be doing a Google style header for now - I'll change it every few days.
