May 2 - Brother and Sister Day
I know you have heard of Mother's Day and Father's Day. You have probably heard of Grandparent's Day and you've maybe heard of Baby Day (which is also today), but today is Brother and Sister Day. This is the day we celebrate YOU.
We're not really sure how this special holiday got started but it always celebrated on May 2, no matter what day of the week it is on. Most of you probably have a brother or sister, but even if you don't you are part of God's big family so we are brothers and sisters together.
So what should we do to celebrate our siblings? Clean their room, nah. Should we let them have the biggest piece of cake? Well, should the brother or sister get the biggest? That seems like could start another family fight. How about thinking of something that would be special, something that no one else would think about. Think hard, you have all day, but make sure you come up with something to let them know that today we are celebrating them!
Your family was put together by God, and your parents were so excited as you and your siblings joined the family. They love you very much and even though you might not want to admit it, you love your siblings very much. So celebrate today and thank God for each one of them.
