According to the U.S. Census, 79% of all children in the U.S. grow up with siblings. That's a lot of people. So we give our www.nohoartsdistrict.com readers a reminder: April 10, 2018 is National Sibling Day. Surprise your sibling and do something kind.
National Sibling Day is a day to honor, appreciate and cherish all brothers and sisters and memorialize those who are no longer with us. Take the time to give your sibling a hug, e-card, special lunch/dinner or maybe a simple picnic at the local park. For those on a budget and not geographically close to your sibling, send them a poem or a photo of you two playing as children, have a local restaurant deliver them dinner, or a phone call will work, too.
If you and your sibling live near each other and close to North Hollywood, pick up a NoHo Discount Card (nohoartsdistrict.com/nohocard) and discounts off a delicious meal together at The Federal Bar, Pitfire, Fat Dog, or whatever tickles your fancy.
Life is short. They got the same blood running through their veins. Remember what happens when you smile at someone ....they smile back automatically. So take National Sibling Day as a day to make your brother or sister smile.
If you are the only child, you can still celebrate. You can honor the friends who have acted just like a brother or sister should. This day is to spread the love to those who stand by you like a sibling is supposed to.
This holiday was created by Claudia A. Evart of New York City to honor the memory of her sister Lisette and brother Alan. Both siblings died from tragic accidents. Claudia established a not for profit organization to promote this wonderful day of sibling appreciation - Siblings Day Foundation, www.siblingsday.org. Since 1998, 56 governors have signed proclamations in 32 states recognizing this day. To our knowledge, there has not been a presidential proclamation or act of Congress to make this a true national holiday.
So spread the brotherly and sisterly love whether they're your blood relation, friend or furry friend.
