Sister's Day

Aug 01, 2014

Your sister can be everything from your BFF, your only ally, a source of support and your first stop for advice – in short these special siblings are invaluable, so if you have a sister get ready to show them how much they mean to you on Sister’s Day this August 4th!

Sister’s Day is a lesser-known holiday, but if you want to keep track it usually falls on the first Sunday of August. If you and your sis are inseparable this is the perfect chance to shower her with affection!

Award-winning American author Toni Morrison describes sisters this way: A sister can be seen as someone who is both ourselves and very much not ourselves - a special kind of double. Celebrating your sister is celebrating a special part of yourself and your family.

What You Can Do

It’s up to you to decide the best way to celebrate Sister’s Day with your built-in BFF, whether you just want to hang out swapping secrets or hit the town as a team. Here are a few suggestions to get you started!

  • Make her a card with a special message from you
  • Are you crafty? Make her a gift!
  • Buy her a book (we recommend Little Women, the ultimate sister story!)
  • Plan a sister shopping day
  • Buy her jewelry, your sister will feel like a queen
  • Give her a makeover
  • Is your sister sporty? Go to the park and throw the ol' ball around.
  • Plan a surprise party for your sis
  • Go to the beach
  • Treat her to ice cream
  • Set up a movie night and watch one her top picks (or if you need a suggestion, how about The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants!)
  • Take her out for lunch
  • Does your sister have a hobby? If so, Sister’s Day is the perfect opportunity to jump in and do it with her
  • Play games with your sister, if your sister is younger than you she’ll probably jump at the chance to get some one on one time with her older sibling (who she no doubt adores!)

We have ruined our planet and sadly when mankind goes down so will the nature and wild animals and it will be our fault.Unless people really like for real cared! But they don't. So your fact were true before but now that we desroyed the earth and are still doing so this world for us won't end natrually. Also what about our kids their kids their grandchildren so even if though the world won't end in our lifetime what about our future families? What about them? :(

Hiii! This is my first english poem/song I hope u like it, and.. sorry for grammar, After all, I am not native-speaking-english.girl STEP OUT OF SHADOW Suddenly, you realise, You are going down a wrong path, It is too late to turn around… Just open your eyes and hurry up Cause time flies…   At the moment, All your dreams seem so worthless, And your apologizes so useless. The reflection in the mirror Doesen`t seem yours any more, Can you move on? You are not so sure…   Just step out of shadow and smile, I know it it`s hard, But please, try! The world is not  sad or dark, In every single man, There is a good spark!   You think about The opportunities that you have lost, About hurting one you love, And that really hurts the most… You scream but no one hears you, You cry but no one sees you…   I know , They `ve been telling you To give up, that this is just an illusion; But I am telling you: That is a wrong conclusion! Don`t listen what they say, Little things can push Your problems away!     Just step out of shadow and smile, I know it it`s hard, But please, try! The world is not  sad or dark, In every single man, There is a good spark!
