National Sisters’ Day, the first Sunday of August

Being part of a family is not always easy, and though all brothers and sisters have arguments throughout life, at the end of the day, our family is one of the closest ties we have. The bond between siblings is special, but the connection between sisters is unique – a sister is the one to confide and consult with, share secrets and dreams, laugh with during the good times and cry with during bad times. While they sometimes make one another crazy, sisters always have each other’s back.

There are different kinds of sisters, and even those who do not have a sister from the same father or mother, know that sisterhood is not necessarily a blood connection but rather a supportive relationship and an unbreakable union based on shared experiences and memories.

National Sisters’ Day, observed annually on the first Sunday in August, is an unofficial holiday celebrating the special connection between sisters. The day aims to encourage people to honor their sisters, acknowledge, and cherish the love and happiness they bring to each other’s life.

The essence of National Sisters’ Day is letting your sister know how much you value and appreciate her. Whether your sisterhood is by blood or relationship, you can celebrate the day by showing her your love. You can send flowers or a card, give her a present, take her out for brunch or cook her dinner. You can organize a movie night and watch sisterly movies, such as Little Women, Frozen, and Hannah and Her Sisters. Create new memories with your sister and share them on social media using #NationalSistersDay.
