Today is National Sister Day

Hollywood, MD - Sisterhood is the spice of life, all the way to family or sororities or even girl groups like Destiny’s Child. Sisters hold a bond that can never be broken and you can always count on them for whatever you need. August 6 marks National Sister’s Day. National Sister’s Day doesn’t have an exact origin but it was first celebrated Aug. 7, 2007, and is observed every first Sunday in August.

India also has a similar holiday around this time as well. Raksha Bandhan, or Rakhi, is a Hindu festival that honors the bond of siblings. Raksha Bandhan is celebrated on the full moon of the month of Shravan (July-August) and this year, the holiday falls on Monday, Aug. 7. In the tradition of Raksha Bandhan, sisters tie a rakhi, a silk bracelet that symbolizes protection and the bond between siblings, on their brother's wrist and prays they have a long life and brothers give their sister a gift as a vow to always protect them.

Although National Sister Day doesn’t have the deep-rooted cultural tie in America, it’s important we treasure and strengthen our relationship with our siblings. So celebrate National Sister Day by kicking it with your sister or ‘sister from another mister’ and showing her how much you love and appreciate her.
