According to the plethora of posts I saw on social media yesterday, apparently it was “National Siblings Day.” I was unaware…sorry Kevin.
Wikipedia tells me: “In the US, 79% of all children have siblings when growing up.Similar to Mother’s Day or Father’s Day, the holiday is intended to be a celebration of the relationship of brothers and sisters. 2014 marks the 15th year the day has been celebrated.”
In order to make up for my lack of celebration I dedicate today’s “Five Things Friday” to my brother.
5 REASONS MY BROTHER IS PRETTY GREAT
2. He made eating cotton candy look adorable.
3. For a good number of years he rocked a bowl cut (and fanny pack AND velcro shoes).
4. He makes a great traveling companion on family vacations. Low-key, easy to please, up for anything.
5. Even though it’s hard for me to think of him as an “adult” (I’M not even one!) he has grown up to be a really great guy.
AND I can’t forget to mention my other newly acquired/soon-to-be siblings:
Within a year I’ll have gained two sisters and a brother!
Enjoy your weekend everyone!
I want to know…
Do you have siblings?
Do they live close? Far away?
