TODAY IS BROTHER’S DAY
Oh brother! Have you got a boy sibling that drives you a bit crazy, but you love to bits anyway? Brother’s Day exists to celebrate that weird bond!
The bond between siblings is naturally very strong. Growing up together, getting into trouble, playing games together, the competitiveness between you. Perhaps you have just one brother, perhaps you have lots – today, it’s time to reflect on the ways in which your sibling has enriched your life.
Brothers might not be as inclined as sisters when it comes down to hugging, sending flowers, or even remember about celebrations altogether. How many birthdays have you remembered at the last minute and had to arrange an on-the-spot gift?
Of course, this does not mean that you value less the people around you. However, you can save yourself from embarrassment by just adding a quick tick to your calendar. This trick might even make you look amazing when you remember about Brother’s Day before your forgetful siblings!
