March 31st

The idea for this day came from a woman who realized-too late-when her brother died, that she had never let him adequately know how much he meant to her.

Two years later, she proposed establishing a simple, non-commercial day on which brothers and sisters could make it a point to connect, or reconnect, acknowledging all they share. "Because life is too short," the woman said. "I don't want other people to miss what I missed."
