National Siblings Day History

National Siblings Day seeks to highlight the importance of siblings in our lives, both for their formative influence and their ongoing companionship. This also provides an opportunity to reflect on these relationships, pay tribute to them, and reconnect among siblings.

National Siblings Day has a relatively brief history, initiated by Claudia Evart in the United States in 1995 following the loss of her siblings. The observance soon gained traction in other parts of the world, including Canada. For the Canadian population, this day holds similar values, highlighting their familial bonds and the distinct sense of companionship siblings offer. As in other countries, it is a cherished opportunity for Canadians to express gratitude and appreciation for their brothers and sisters.

National Siblings Day is observed in Canada usually in a quiet, intimate fashion. Generally, siblings spend quality time together, reminisce about shared times, and exchange gifts or cards expressing their love and appreciation. Shared activities often include family meals, outings, or other communal affairs. Whether siblings live close by or are separated by distances, Canadians utilize this day to reach out and celebrate their familial bonds. National Siblings Day occurs each year on April 10th.
