About National Cousins Day

When is National Cousins Day? This holiday is always celebrated on July 24

Today is National Cousins Day. This July 24 holiday honors and celebrates your Aunts and Uncles’ kids. They are those great kids who are likely close to your age and endure countless family get-togethers with you. If it wasn’t for cousins, these family events would be much, much longer.

This is a great day for your cousins. Now, hold on a minute. If you have cousins, that means your cousins have cousins. And, that’s you! Therefore, today is your day, too.

Are You Kissin’ Cousins? This is a common term, usually meant to describe cosines who are distant enough to have a relationship to marry each other.  There are laws, which vary by state and country, about cousins marrying one another. Most people will agree first cousins cannot marry each other.  Beyond that second or third cousins can marry each other in most areas. We recommend you check your local, state, and federal laws.

Today’s Greeting: “What’s buzzin cuzzin?”
