Celebrate Our Sisters!
By Claire Ciszewski
Although some are quick to say that many American Holidays were created to continue Card Companies, it is so much more than that. Holidays are a great way to pay tribute cultural norms. For instance, there are holidays that may be celebrated in one country, and never heard of in another. The Mother’s and Father’s Day in America is practically unheard of in Japan where Boy’s and Girl’s Day is more popular. Holidays are important aspects in cultures because they are respective of values held in different societies.
This August a not so well heard of holiday was noticed, Sisters Day. A Day to celebrate the joys that come with being and having a Sister. For all of those moments that a sister has been there for you. Whether it have been the lifesaving moment of TP rescue when you are in the bathroom or to cheer you on in your volleyball game, having a sister is definitely worth celebrating. This past August 3rd was Sister’s Day, and it comes with a unique and not so well documented history as well.
