National Brother Day seeks to celebrate brothers, the male sibling and their contributions to each and every one of their families. It seeks to celebrate the bond between brothers and its significance.
National Brother Day is an unofficial national holiday that is annually celebrated on the 24th of May. It is not to be confused with National Sibling Day, which is celebrated in April.
The bond between siblings is naturally very strong. Growing up together, getting into trouble, playing games together, the competitiveness between you. Perhaps you have just one brother, perhaps you have lots – today, it’s time to reflect on the ways in which your sibling has enriched your life.
There’s no doubt that sometimes brothers don’t get the fame and fortune that the above do – but this day is about making sure that your brother knows that you still think the world of him, even if you don’t always get along!
How to Celebrate
Take a brother out for a meal and discuss cherished family memories together. Some great places to take out your brother would be a favorite restaurant of his or a spot that is meaningful to you both from your past.
