It's National Siblings Day, a holiday which I've referenced here on Blogger an in one of my entries re the event, I pointed out how Holiday Insights defines this occasion. They state, "National Sibling Day is a day to appreciate and cherish your brothers and sisters. Siblings are truly a special blessing that we probably all too often take for granted..."
In the aforementioned entry, I confessed I think this holiday is for the birds, and featured Cam's children Frannie, Vincenzo, Pica-John and Peanut). As you may know, Cam is the female cardinal who is the story teller in my Words In Our Beak book series.*
Waterfowl seem to be very family oriented. This is an observation that I've written about a number of times here on Blogger. where I've included the following set of photographs of Canadian Geese siblings enjoying a night out in Central Park with their mom and dad.
However, people are not necessarily so enthusiastic when it comes to sibling; the PEANUTS comic strip below accentuates this fact.
Be that as it may, rather one appreciates his/her sibling or not, concentrating on how the birds treat each other is a nice way to honor this unofficial holiday.
