WASHINGTON, April 10 (UPI) -- April 10 is the officially recognized holiday of National Siblings Day.

The day has been recognized as an event in other countries for thousands of years, and recognized in the U.S. in 2008 due to the efforts of the Siblings Day Foundation.

Claudia Evart, founder of the Siblings Day Foundation, wanted to make it a holiday after both of her siblings passed away.

The idea behind it is similar to Father's Day or Mother's Day, only siblings get a little more attention and appreciation.
