National Siblings Day (also referred to as Sibling Day) on April 10th each year honors our brothers and sisters.

Siblings. They are sometimes our best friends or our worst enemies. At times, siblings will provide us with our biggest competition, strongest encouragement and remind us of our most embarrassing moments.

Fictional characters describe those siblings best who are both rivals and yet are best friends. In The Hunger Games, Katniss puts her life on the line to save her sister Prim. Both Bo and Luke Duke in The Dukes of Hazzard risked their lives for each other. Author Beverly Cleary’s Beezus and Ramona’s longtime love-hate relationship between siblings depicted a normal childhood filled with angst.

Real-life royal siblings Queen Elizabeth and Princess Margaret had a different set of rules to follow making their relationship quite different from anything we would call normal. Being a queen will do that.

Queen Elizabeth’s grandsons, Princes William and Harry and William’s children, too have royal sibling relationships that engage the world.

There have been plenty of presidents with siblings as well. George W. Bush has five siblings and William Jefferson Clinton has three.
