Where the World Gathers to Celebrate Every Day

NATIONAL SISTERS DAY – First Sunday in August

National Sisters Day - First Sunday in August


National Sisters Day on the first Sunday in August celebrate the unique bond between sisters. This particular set of siblings embrace moments that make them laugh and cringe. While they don’t always agree, sisters have each other’s backs. 

All siblings have the odd argument here and there, but deep down there’s little way around the natural connection between siblings. Even those who don’t have a natural sister sibling know the bonds of sisterhood. Those who forge a relationship with their spouse’s sisters understand. Also, women who support each other through difficult times form a sisterhood.

Quote markA sister is like yourself in a different movie,
a movie that stars you in a different life. ~ Deborah Tannen

No two sisters are alike. From love interests to cars, sisters will disagree. And food, cleaning, and children require interventions. However, we rely on each other while privately envying a sister’s style, ability or grace. A sister understands when no one else does, sometimes when even you don’t. So, sister time provides vital healing. 

Whether your sisters harrassed you from day one or found you later in life, this day brings you back together. Cherish the memories and make plans to create new ones.  Reconnect or patch up any misunderstandings.  Sisters are forever.  


Make this day a special celebration with your sister. If you don’t have a sister, celebrate the friendships of sisterhood by having a girls’ night out! Post on social media using #NationalSistersDay to encourage others to do the same.
