Maybe you have an older sister that you look to for guidance. Maybe you have a younger sister who is looking to you for inspiration. Whatever the circumstance, nothing can quite compare to the bond that sisters have. So on the first Sunday in August, let’s celebrate National Sisters Day — a day to recognize the sisters who make such a difference in our lives.
When is National Sisters Day 2018?
National Sisters Day is celebrated on the first Sunday of August. In 2018 that means it falls on August 5.
National Sisters Day Activities
1. Reach out
If you can't spend time with your sister in person, taking the time to call or send a card is the best gift you can give her.
2. Be a good listener
That means through good times and bad. Empathy and attention can go a long way.
3. Go on an adventure
Try something new together. What better way to bond with your sister than to push some boundaries.
Why We Love National Sisters Day
A. It's a time to fix any misunderstandings
Arguments happen. So take this day to reconnect if necessary. Because it's going to feel great when you can "hug it out" again.
B. No sister? No problem
While it may seem like National Sisters Day is only for people who have biological sisters, your best friend can be just as close. Treat her like a sister!
C. Cherish the memories
Life is busy, but use National Sisters Day as the opportunity to go through your old photos (and videos) and remember the good times. Then, make plans to go somewhere fun and do it all again.
