So it turns out yesterday, July 26th, was Aunt and Uncles Day.
While the origins of the day are difficult to ascertain the sentiment behind it is not.
Research shows us that Aunts and Uncles play a key role in the development of younger relatives but, to be honest, most of us don’t need research to tell us that.
As our parents’ brothers and/or sisters, Aunts and Uncles are those special people who often share many of the good traits of our parents without being constrained by the discipline of parenthood.
End Result? A funner version of our mum or dad!
