National Siblings Day 2013, According to the U.S. Census, 79% of all children in the U.S. grow up with siblings. That is a lot of our visitors, so a reminder: April 10, 2013 is National Sibling Day. Surprise your sibling and do a good deed.
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 enjoy 20% off your delicious meal together at The Federal Bar, 15% off of your entree at Bow & Truss, or a free appetizer at The Eclectic.
Life is short. They got the same blood running through their veins. Remember what happens when you smile at some one ….they smile back automatically.
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.
