Today is National Siblings Day; should U.S. make it a real holiday?


Have you ever wondered why people don't recognize their siblings like they do their parents?

National Siblings Day is not only trending on social media sites today, but there is a group that is trying to make it a real holiday.

The Siblings Day Foundation is calling on President Obama to sign a Presidential Proclamation making it a holiday, and asking others to sign a petition.

Last year, National Siblings Day was the number one trending topic on social media for two consecutive days in April.

According to the Siblings Day Foundation Website, Mother's Day was founded in 1907 and Father's Day in 1910. Siblings Day would follow the spirit of Mother's and Father's day.

New York native, Claudia Evart, felt inspired to create Siblings Day Foundation after losing both of her siblings. The Siblings Day Foundation is a nonprofit, volunteer supported organization. The Siblings Day Foundation has the backing of two former presidents Clinton and Bush as well as many cabinet members.
