Sup Bruhs? Happy National Siblings Day!
April 10th is National Siblings Day and it actually started as a way to honor brothers and sisters who passed away at a very young age.
It’s now growing into a nationwide day of both remembrance and celebration. Most, if not all, states have issued gubernatorial proclamations to observe this day on April 10. Three U.S. presidents have recognized the event -- most recently, President Obama in 2016.
The Siblings Day Foundation, sponsors of this day, are working on establishing a United Nations resolution for an International Siblings Day.
89% of us have at least one brother or sister and 8% have had a physical FIGHT with a sibling that left marks or drew blood.
Does having an older brother who farts on a pillow and then pins me down to make me smell it...does that constitute a fight? I lost, by the way. It was the aroma of cauliflower. T.M.I.? Sorry.
Seattle Seahawks' Griffin twins celebrate this special day in their own unique way. Catch what that's all about here.
