The bond between siblings is extra-special, even more so if one of them has a life-long illness or a disability. Sibling Day is a way of honouring that special bond. Siblings Day was created by Claudia Evart, a freelance paralegal from Manhattan, NY. Evart started the day after losing both her sister at an early age. It is a day of celebration and recognition for brothers and sisters around the world. Siblings Day can be celebrated by sending a card, gift, making a dinner invitation or simply going for a walk in the park. The date of Siblings Day is very important to its founder Claudia as it marks the birthday of her sister Lisette.

The siblings bonds are life-long relationships usually lasting from cradle to grave.  It is usually the longest relationship of a person’s life and typically much longer than a mother’s and father’s relationship.

When did Claudia Evart create Sibling Day?
I thought today, should be Sibling Day when I was looking at a picture of me with my 3 siblings who are all gone. I am only 59. They would have been 66 Mitzi, 64 Eric, and 57 Kurt. I miss them so much at times.
I’d like to know what type of inclusion this day can give people and how to spread the word/

I come from a family of nine children, both parents. My parents passed last year, a week apart. I miss them, but I also no that I won’t see my sisters and brothers as much now. We are scattered all over, so I call as much as possible. But we will see each other May 12th, for my oldest brother 60th birthday. Can’t wait
