Today is National Siblings Day, an annual holiday in the United States to honor brothers and sisters.

Governors in 39 states have officially issued proclamations to recognize and honor siblings.

The ‘holiday’ was created in 1998 by Claudia Evart, a paralegal from Manhattan, to honor her late sister, Lisette, who was born on April 10, and also her brother, both of whom died early.

Evart set up the Siblings Day Foundation that pushes for this day to become nationally recognized by the federal government, among other efforts geared toward siblings.

Today is a perfect day to drop what you’re doing and contact your siblings just to have a laugh or share your gratitude for them.
