In 1935, the United States Congress voted to establish National Friendship Day on the first Sunday of August. Since that time, many countries have decided to join the movement , which is now unofficially a global observance. The origin of National Sisters Day, which is celebrated on the same day, is less clear – but we find it quite fitting that the two occasions coincide. After all, many sisters are lifelong best friends, and our best friends are often like family. No matter what day of the year, Beneva Flowers helps our friends and neighbors in Sarasota to honor the most cherished people in our lives, and August 6th gives us the platform to do so in a meaningful way.
Why It’s Great to Have a Sister: Studies have shown that people who grow up with sisters are usually much happier, more well adjusted adults. They also tend to exhibit more optimistic tendencies, and are often more charitable as a whole – perhaps because of all the sharing that was required when they were young!
