What is National Sisters Day? For those lucky enough to have a sister knows that there is a special and unique bond. You share secrets that you would not tell anyone else with your sister. And if you are sisters, you even clothes. National Sisters Day acknowledges all of the love, joy and pleasure your sister brings into your life. So celebrate the day by making sure she knows how special and important she is to you.

Who created this day? It is unclear who first labeled this day as National Sisters Day, but it is certainly something that has been celebrated from when time began.

How to celebrate: Make National Sisters Day a special celebration with your sister. Spend time with your sister. If you live close, spend time together, whether for a meal or just to relive good memories over coffee.  If you live far apart, take advantage of social media to laugh and cry together. Send cards to. Sisters love to read and reread love notes. If you don’t have a sister, love on someone else’s sister. If you are a woman, you can also still celebrate sisterhood with a girls’ night out. Plan to post on social media pictures and experiences.

If you have not spoken to your sister in a while or things have gotten a bit rough, don’t despair. All siblings fight. But sisters are forever. Deep down there is a need to reconnect, so let National Sisters Day be the spark but reaching out today. Remind each other of a cherished memory and them plan for making new ones.
