About National Sisters Day

When is National Sisters Day? This holiday is celebrated on the first Sunday in August

Sister’s Day celebrates being or having a sister. Today is a day to celebrate your love for your sister(s). That means a lot of us will celebrate this special day. Sisters are truly special and unique. Sure, we may argue and fight. But, when it comes right down to it, sisters are the best, the very best. Make sure you let her know. After all, she may tell you “My sister has the best sister!”.

Who qualifies as a “Sister”? In the spirit of sisterhood and inclusiveness, this can include: biological sisters, blended family sisters, sister-in-law, sorority sisters, and of course religious nuns, Sometimes friends refer to each other as sisters. This relationship counts and is celebrated today, too.

Today does not have to be a gift-giving event. Just being close sisters are a gift enough. How about celebrating Sister’s Day by spending time together!? Go to lunch or dinner, go shopping, or take a trip to the beach. Any activity that the two (or three, or four…) of you enjoy doing together, is the perfect way to spend the day.

For all of you guys reading this, you can celebrate it, too. If you have a sister, let her know how much she is loved by you, and how much she means to you. 

Celebrate Sister’s Day by spending time with your sister. Make it a special day in some way for you, and her.
