Yet some of the most important people who shape our lives are those with whom we grow up every day.
Today, April 10, is National Siblings Day. It celebrates the impact our brothers and sisters had or have on us and how much we appreciate them.
The day was founded by Claudia A. Evart through a non-profit charity, Siblings Day Foundation, in 1998, to honor the memory of her late sister and brother who died in accidents at an early age.
Siblings are our closest family members, other than our parents, with whom we grew up with every day; the bonds we share with them last forever.
Traditions include sending a card or gift, or doing a good deed in honor of a sibling no longer with us.
At MyHeritage, we want to know about your favorite memories of your siblings, from childhood or more recently.
In honor of the day, leave a comment below with “I love my sibling because… .” We’ll choose one of the best answers to win a $50 Amazon gift card to send to your sibling as a gift for the special day.
