The bond between siblings is very special as they are like the mix between parents and friends. They are an important part of one's life and no matter what the relationship is, the bond is always strong. Every year, April 10 is celebrated as the National Siblings.
Claudia Evart is the founder of the National Siblings Day in USA back in 1995. After losing her brother and sister at a very early age, she created this holiday to honour the bonds between siblings. In memory of her dead sister, Lisette, whose birthday was on April 10, Claudia started celebrating Siblling's Day on the same date.
Claudia also founded the Siblings Day Foundation whose mission is to honour siblings and the bond between them. Her foundation is currently working hard to make Sibling's Day a federally recognised holiday in the US. They are also working to establish it as an international holiday though the UN organisation. 49 American states have recognised this holiday since 1998. Three US presidents, including Barack Obama, have also recognised the holiday.
Along with America, India, Australia and Spain have also pushed this agenda to make it an internally recognised day. In India, Sibling's Day is celebrated in the form of Raksha Bandhan. Siblings tie each other rakhis vowing to protect each other from all difficulties. In Europe, the day is celebrated as Brothers and Sisters day on May 31. Portugal has even recognised it as a holiday.
