Who Started Siblings Day?

Losing a sibling can be devastating. The grief of losing two is unfathomable. Claudia Evart commenced the celebration of Siblings Day in 1995 after going through a personal mishap like this when she lost her brother and her sister. She chose 10th April, her late sister's birthday, as the day to annually remember her siblings and that came to be known as Siblings Day in the U.S. and Europe. Losing someone makes us value them more and that feeling probably inspired and pushed Claudia to do this in memory of her siblings.
