For the last several years anyone on social media has seen the meteoric rise of Siblings Day, which is celebrated April 10th. The last few years Siblings Day has gotten major attention on The Huffington Post, Buzzfeed, The Today Show and other mainstream media sources.
Do you realize that 80% of Americans have siblings? With the 2017 population at 325 million Americans, this mean 260 million people are eligible to receive flowers on Siblings Day. Of course, flowers are the perfect way to celebrate the relationship with your brother and sisters.
This holiday is relatively new but has an intriguing story. According to Wikipedia, it was originally conceived by Claudia Evart to honor the memory of her brother and sister, who both died at a young age.

The goal of the organization is to celebrate and memorialize all brothers and sisters, and the bond that is forever a special gift.
