CONTEST NOW CLOSED- Calling All Brothers and Sisters, It’s Siblings Day!

4 - AprilEN (1).png

 

Hey Community,

 

What is Siblings Day exactly? It’s a day when we celebrate our brothers and sisters and all that they do for us. A sibling can be so many things: best friend, babysitter, competitor for your parent’s attention, tormentor, person you laugh with the most. Often times they’re also the person who knows the most about you. Here are four things only your sibling will get about you:

 

1. How to Push Your Buttons

They grew up with you, so they know exactly what makes you tick. Whether it’s playing music too loud or bringing up that one time in 3rd grade you peed your pants, they know exactly how to annoy you.

 

2. Inside Jokes About Your Family
Only a sibling will understand how hilarious it is when you say, “Mom asked me how to Facebook today,” or, “Dad asked me who Drake was.” Plus, your sibling does an amazing impression of your uncle saying something inappropriate.

 

3. Your Weird Quirks
They were raised in the same house so they probably don’t find it weird that you also eat ice cream with a fork or can recite every line from your favourite movie. Don’t be afraid to eat French fries with mustard, your sibling will understand.

 

4. Your Secret Sibling Code
All siblings have their own secret language. Sometimes it’s words or phrases you used in your shared childhood. Other times just a wink, a nudge, or a cough will let you know exactly what they’re talking about.

 

So, take time today to give your sibling a call and tell them how much they mean to you. Plus, share a funny sibling story below by 12:00 PM ET on April 17, 2019 and we’ll randomly select 3 winners to receive a $50 account credit. Play nice now, nothing too embarrassing 😜. Contest runs April 10 to April 17, 2019. Read Contest Rules before entering.

Re: Calling All Brothers and Sisters, It’s Siblings Day!

 

This is easy.... MANY years ago my elder bro and I had a "freindly" wrestling match go all wrong.

 

In short, I never stood a chance against him - but one day he decided to make a running splash and I moved. The end result was his head going through the drywall while I ran and hid.

 

He pretty much knocked himself out so I did what any other little bro would do, quietly snuck into the room, rolled him over, pinned him, immediately retired with the championship, and hid for the next two hours Smiley Tongue.

 

Dad still talks about all the damage to the house he had to fix... lol, I don't think my knee ever fully recovered from bashing through so many things.

 

Happy siblings day peeps!!!

Lol - yes, the good old table and chairs match.

 

I still cringe when I think about the first time that I missed a Supa-fly off the kitchen counter. I missed of course cause I jumped up while launching and whacked my head in to the ceiling....

Re: Calling All Brothers and Sisters, It’s Siblings Day!

One time my grand parents to keep us entertained tossed a huge jar filled with change in the back yard, i was a great brother so I had mine convinced that the bigger the coin, the more it was worth so I would of course be willing to give him 1 nickle for his 2 dimes. I had many dimes, he had few nickles. Haha.

My brother... I knew him before he was born. Born of a different mother. We are 14 years apart, and now, we are 1400 kms apart.... haha.

Re: Calling All Brothers and Sisters, It’s Siblings Day!

Not too funny at the time, but funny now. 

 

My brother and I were fighing about something, and I pushed him down. He got up, and had this look in his eye, different from the standard "I'm gonna get you" look.

 

I ran down the hallway in our house, and as soon as I closed the door behind me, I heard a loud BANG!

 

I opened the door a crack, and there were scissors stuck in the door!!! Needless to say, that ended the fight... 

 

We still laugh about it today. That was 35 years ago!

Re: Calling All Brothers and Sisters, It’s Siblings Day!

When we were young my sister would pick on me all the time. One time at school I was not feeling well yet she was still pushing me around me so I puked all over her. Worst day of her life but she stopped picking on me!

Re: Calling All Brothers and Sisters, It’s Siblings Day!

My sister and I came through the door late one night. I looked down under the high chair at what I thought was a very large spider. I screamed and she tried throwing a shoe at it and missed. IT DIDNT EVEN FLENCH!! I thought a brave spider like that will surely jump at you if you challenge it. So I, being the brave soul i was not, took another shoe and decided to slowly go up to it and kill it close range. As i proceeded with caution I got close and realized it was one of the toy spiders my sister bought for my nephew. Lets just say we had a big laugh and promised we would never speak about it to anyone...lol.

Re: Calling All Brothers and Sisters, It’s Siblings Day!

Back in my university days, when a female classmate once phoned for me, my older brother took the message in my absence.  When he relayed the message, he added, "Is she hot?...Yeah? Well, if you don't ask her out, I'm going to beat the stuffing out of you!"  That's when I realized, he really cares about me.  Smiley LOL
