Sisters' Day

Sisters' Day celebrates the special relationship and bond that sisters share, a bond that usually begins in childhood. It is a day when sisters show appreciation for each other and recognize the importance of their relationship. Not only is it celebrated by biological sisters, but by sisterly friends and even by brothers and sisters.

Tricia Eleogram of Memphis, Tennessee, came up with the idea for the day, along with one of her sisters, as they were driving to Florida. Afterward, in 1997, she was on a trip with a group of girlfriends and they found out they all had sisters. One of her friends, Stacey Berry, was especially enthusiastic about the idea of creating a day. Together they wrote a book about sisters and officially created the day.

How to Observe Sisters' Day

Spend time with your sisters and with those whom you view as sisters. Make memories and share old ones. Give your sisters gifts. If you can't be with your sisters today, send them a card or call them on the phone. You could also celebrate the day by listening to songs that mention sisters and by watching movies about sisters.
