Brother and Sister Day is celebrated on the last Saturday in March each year. The idea for this day came from a woman who realized-too-late-when her brother died, that she had never let him adequately know how much he meant to her.
Two years later, she proposed establishing a simple, non-commercial day on which brothers and sisters could make it a point to connect, or reconnect, acknowledging all they share. “Because life is too short,” the woman said. “I don’t want other people to miss what I missed.”
The idea of this day is to keep is simple and sincere. A few ideas on how to celebrate are:
- Spend a minute (or more) thinking about your brothers or sisters
- Get together with them
- Call or send an e-card, email, or letter
- Do something special or helpful for them
