Happy sisters' day

Celebrated on the first Sunday of August on an annual basis, Sister’s Day is a fun holiday in which sisters can acknowledge the bonds of love and friendship between them and celebrate the special relationship that only exists between them and their sister – or sisters, as the case may be. And while this holiday was initially established to acknowledge the relationship between biological sisters, over the years, more and more people are celebrating “sister-like” relationships that may exist with their friends or coworkers.

Iran (IMNA) - While sister is usually used to refer to a female sibling, the term can be used for a variety of relationships. In many cultures, the term is used to address a female nurse, a woman who is in religious service, like a nun, or any other unrelated woman who shares a person's religion. Members of a sorority - a female social organization on college campuses - also call each other sisters.

How to Celebrate?

  • If you live far from your sister, call them or send them a card telling them how much you love them and appreciate them.
  • If you live close to them, visit them or take them out for a nice meal and treat them to their favorite dessert.
  • Don't have a sister who you share genes with? What about celebrating your female friends who have provided you the love and support that only a sister can?

Did You Know that a similar holiday, Rakshabandhan or Rakhi is celebrated by those who follow the Hindu religion around the same time as Sisters' Day? Celebrated every year on a full Moon day, the holiday honors the sacred bond between brothers and sisters.
