On what day is National Brothers Day celebrated? May 24
What is National Brothers Day? This day was created to celebrate and honor brothers. Whether you have one or ten brothers, chances are they each have a special place in your heart. If you don’t have a biological brother, use this day to celebrate someone who is like a brother to you, such as a best friend.
Brothers share memories and challenges with you. They are the ones that will pick on you one moment, but defend you the next. They may have been too cool for you once. Brothers come in all shapes and sizes and so do relationships with them.
Who founded this day? C. Daniel Rhodes of Alabama founded Brothers Day.
