National Siblings Day History

National Siblings Day serves to celebrate and recognize the importance of brothers and sisters. The bonds and relationships between brothers and sisters are unlike any other as it is usually a person's longest relationship over his/her lifetime. This day aims to honor those bonds by encouraging siblings to appreciate one another.

National Siblings Day was created in 1995 by Claudia Evart, a New Yorker who lost both of her siblings. It is observed annually on April 10, a date that marks the birthday of Evart's late sister.
