The bond between siblings is extraordinary and unique. Even if the relationship with them seemed like a never-ending war during childhood (pulling hair and annoying pranks), we realize their role in our lives as we grow up.
We get to appreciate them more. All the unconditional love and support shared memories, and youth stories deserve to be recognized and celebrated.
We have a special day to celebrate our brothers and sisters – Siblings Day! Siblings Day is celebrated on April 10 every year.
When Is National Siblings Day?
Siblings Day is celebrated every April 10 to recognize our brothers and sisters.
Who Started Siblings Day?
Claudia Evart is the founder of Siblings Day (a foundation with the same name). She lost her brother and sister at a young age, and to cherish their memory, Claudia decided to organize this special day. She picked the date – April 10th – her sister’s birthday.
History of National Siblings Day
Siblings Day was first celebrated in 1998, and it became popular very quickly, first in the USA and then in other countries worldwide.
For Siblings Day, we offer gifts to our brothers and sisters, see them for coffee or dinner, celebrate with the whole family, or send them a heartfelt message.
How to Celebrate National Siblings Day
When it comes to celebrating National Siblings Day, it’s all up to you. You can call your brother/ sister for a friendly long chat or Facetime with all of them simultaneously.
Or you can post a funny picture from your childhood or youth on social media (something not too embarrassing for them!).
You can drop by for coffee at their place and ask them to come to dinner or whatever feels right for you. A message is always a good idea. Here is some inspiration.

Messages for All My Brothers and Sisters
I would never understand how people who grew up without brothers and sisters made it alive. For me, my brothers and sisters were everything. And today, I feel the same!
Life would have been so boring without you, my brothers and sisters! Here’s to us! Let us have as much fun in old age as we did in our childhood!
Shared memories are not the only things connecting us now. All my brothers and sisters had left a mark on my personality. From all of you, I’ve learned precious things – to be kind, to make sure to laugh at myself occasionally, not to take things too seriously all the time, and to enjoy the people around me.
I thought it was so frustrating to be the little one. But now I realize I was always sheltered and looked after by all my bigger brothers and sisters. Thank you, guys! You are amazing!
It feels like you could never hear your thoughts with brothers and sisters. And even if you do, you always wonder if they are yours or theirs! But you also never feel alone or lonely!
My brother and sister are the most important people in my life. I can do anything with them by my side because I know they always have my back.
We Are Family
When we were kids, I’d always get into trouble, and you’d always get me out of trouble, even if that meant some trouble for you. Thanks, bro and sis, you are my best friends.
You took my things, and I always had to share my sweets with you (something I hated), but growing up with you, guys, was an adventure I could only begin to appreciate now. Thanks for all the fun moments we had together.
The best thing about having more siblings is always having a friend and a foe in the family. Never a boring moment with you guys; thanks for everything you ever did for me (and everything you’ll do from now on!)
Siblings Day Messages for My Brother
Throughout my life, you have been my raw model, my shoulder to cry on, and my best friend. There is no one else that I hold so close to my heart. Thanks for being such an amazing big brother to me for all this time!
My little brother, my wish for you is always to be happy, healthy, and never sad. May love find you, may friends never disappoint you, and may your enemies stay far away from you. May the road you’ve chosen in life be the right one and lead you to achieve your life’s goal!
Today is about the best man in my life – my brother! The one who has always been too kind for words, considerate and caring. Your love and support have defined me, and I can’t thank you enough.
What I wish for you is challenging to put into words. Because I want to give you infinite happiness and joy, love and compassion, people to count on, and never-ending fun. I wish you what you’ve given me all those years growing up and now.
My brother is the best part of me. I tell people this, and they laugh, considering this a joke. But we know better. We know we are a part of each other and will always be.
My Bro Sentiments
A brother makes fun of you, laughs at your dreams, and helps you accomplish them without wondering if you can do them. A brother like my brother is the best gift one could receive in life.
You are an amazing man, and I’m proud to call you my brother. Through thick and thin, we stuck together and helped each other.
When I talk about you, I can’t help but smile because I remember all the naughty things we did as kids, all the times you held me so I wouldn’t fall, and all the love that came my way from you. I appreciate you more than words could say.
My brother, you are the person I could always count on—the one who shows up no matter what. The one always by my side, no matter how wrong I might be. And the one loving me, no matter how hard to love I might feel. Thank you!
It’s funny how the most important people in our lives are often the ones that we’ve fought with the hardest. You nagged me to do good, to be good, and it went on for so long that it worked. Thank you for keeping me on the bright side, bro!
Messages for My Sister
I hope you’ll always be as happy, lucky, and loved as you are today and as you always make me feel. God must have loved me a lot since he gave me a sister like you!
You are the best sis in the world! I’m grateful for having you by my side despite the difficulties and the changes and challenges we’ve been through.
A sister is like a mother but only better because you can tell her all the naughty things you’ve done or are planning to do!
My sister never lets me down. She is reliable and a real raw model. I am trying every day to be better and do better, to be more like you, dear sis!
A friend in need is a friend indeed. For me, this friend was always you, my sister. You know me better than anyone else and love me still.
My dear sister, I’ve never told you before, but I love you more! More than I did when we were kids, more than I did when we played hide and seek, more than yesterday. More with each Day!
You helped me believe in myself when no one else did. You helped me understand my desires and dreams matter and are worth following. And you made my life better in every single way. Thanks, sis!
We fight, we make up, we have fun and cry together! You are my sis, and I love you forever.
Sis, you are fantastic in every way, and I’m grateful I’ve had someone like you in my life growing up!
I’m So Grateful Messages for My Siblings
I could never thank you enough for your support, advice, and love. You will always be the most critical person in the world to me. I don’t think anyone could have been there for me more than you did. And for this, I am eternally grateful!
I was lucky to have a sister/ brother as kind, smart, and loving as you. Because I’ve seen from an early age what sibling love feels like, and this gave me the confidence to try things I was too scared to try on my own. Thank you for being my sister/ brother!
Whatever life threw my way, I was never alone in dealing with it. I am so grateful you were always beside me to laugh in good times and cry when things were tough.
As your little brother/ sister, I always felt like I was living in your shadow. And I’ve only recently realized that that shadow allowed me time to work on myself and become the best man/ woman I could be. I was actually sheltered, and I couldn’t be more grateful now.
I thank God every day for giving me a sibling like you. You were more than I could have dreamt of in terms of family. You gave me unconditional love and support no matter what I did (and I did some things…). Thank you for being you and for being my sister/ brother.
You were more than a brother/sister to me. You were light when I could only see darkness. And you were a helping hand when I needed one. You were a wake-up call when I needed one of those. You are my moral compass and my partner in crime, all at the same time. And with you, I’m happy to do anything and be anywhere. I’m so grateful to you.
Longer Messages for My Sister/ Brother
The kindest, smartest, most caring person in the world happened to be my sister/brother. For me, you were always my best friend, my best laugh, and my partner in crime. I hope we stay like this forever and nothing comes between us!
They say we all have a guardian angel who’s watching over us from heaven. In my case, I’m pretty sure mine came down to Earth as he was by my side every day since I can remember. Thank you, my dear brother, for being my guardian angel! You bring light into my life, kindness, and all that is good on this Earth.
Childhood was lots of fun, and I always tell people how amazing it was to grow up with you. How we did everything together, how we fought and laughed and hugged. How we always supported each other. Whenever I want to remember those days, all I have to do is call you, and your voice brings it all back in a second! Thank you for this!
Thoughtful Messages for Siblings
Brotherly love has always been the strongest. A tight bond that we’ll share forever. You were always my pride and joy and the person who really got me. You helped me get through some wild times in my life; you were always there to guide me and tell me to be strong. Believing in you made me believe in myself. Thank you!
My goal in life was to be a good man to make you proud of me. Because I’ve seen such an amazing person in you, I wanted to do my best to be kind and considerate to everyone. You helped me carve a life for myself despite all the hardships. You were there for me in my lowest moment and in my hour of joy. When I look back at our relationship, you are a part of me. Now and for all eternity.
I never had to worry about anything growing up because you were there. All I ever did was place my trust in you, and things were smooth and easy for me. When I had problems, you were there. When I found love, you were there. And when I grieved, you held my hand. Thank you for being amazing all the time.
My Brothers and Sisters
My nightmares were never too scary when we were kids. We shared a room together, so I was never really alone in dealing with monsters on my own. And I was incredibly lucky for this to continue even after we grew up and moved from our bedroom. My problems were never too big because I could always talk to you about them. Thank you!
Just knowing that there is always a person out there ready to come to my aid, whatever the issue might be, gave me great confidence to do things I probably wouldn’t have done other ways. You’ve been my model, my sparring partner, my one true love, and the person I have fought with the most! I am grateful to have you in my life!
Quotes About Siblings
Your siblings are the only people in the world who know what it’s like to have been brought up the way you were.
To have a loving relationship with a sister is not simply to have a buddy or a confidant – it is to have a soulmate for life.
Brother and sister, together as friends, ready to face whatever life sends.
Half the time when brothers wrestle, it’s just an excuse to hug each other.
A sibling may be the sole keeper of one’s core identity, the one person with the keys to one’s unfettered, more fundamental self.
You may be as different as the sun and the moon, but the same blood flows through both your hearts. You need her, as she needs you.
George R.R. Martin
Brother and Sister Sayings
The advantage of growing up with siblings is that you become very good at fractions.
Siblings-the definition that comprises love, strife, competition, and forever friends.
To the outside world, we all grow old. But not to brothers and sisters. We know each other as we always were, we know each other’s hearts, and we share private family jokes. We remember family feuds and secrets, family griefs and joys.
If you want to do really important things in life and big things in life, you can’t do anything by yourself. And your best teams are your friends and your siblings.
