National Cousins Day

National Cousins Day

National Cousins Day is celebrated annually on July 24th, a time to celebrate those extended family members, and cousins and let them know how you truly love and appreciate them.

You share a special bond with your cousins and spend a load of time with them on holidays, family unions, weddings, anniversaries, and various other functions, they are your true friends for life.

Why cousins are important in our life

1. Our first friends

Cousins are our first friends whom we played with since childhood, with whom we shared our first sleepovers and they become our adolescent confidants.

2. Forever friends

Cousins are your friend for a lifetime. Distance may get you disconnected from friends but not cousins. They will be your friends to share their support throughout their life.

3. Helpmates

When you need help the first person you remember is your near cousin.

4. Semi-distant members

The love between cousins will not fade with distance, and when you meet you will share all that is happening in your life.

5. Special members of the family

They are not the biological members of your family like a sibling, but more likely they still play an important role in our lives.

Reach out to your cousin on this National Cousin Day and let them know how much they are loved. Make contact with them and they will surely love it, reminisce some of your childhood memories with them and bring that much-needed good cheer and love they offer.
