Brotherly love at it’s finest.

I don’t care if you hate your brother or want to throw your sister off a cliff—today is they day to give them some loving.

April 10th is National Sibling Day.

“You don’t have to like me— we’re family.”

Take them out for lunch or just send them a quick text telling them you love them. Let them know that even though you fought over the last piece of candy on Easter day, you still care for them.

When it comes to your sibling and the little (sometimes big) fights, you have a way to fix it, right? Whether it be storming out of the room, the silent treatment or full blown fist fights, by the time the end of the day rolls around everything is better.

“I can beat up my brother but if you even look at him wrong we’re going to have a problem.”

So keep that in mind and try to realize that fighting over that 1D poster or the last piece of pizza really isn’t worth it. There’s much better things to fight over—I mean, what, no… don’t fight.

But in all seriousness, family is family. Take this day to look past any differences you have with your siblings and make a night out of it. Go get some ice cream, take a walk, or play some video games (…I recommend Five Nights at Freddy’s…).

There isn’t really a wrong way to handle this day. Take it in stride and makes some memories in the process.
