Special bonds between family and friends.

People all over the world acknowledged National Siblings Day on Tuesday April 10 where brothers and sisters got together to celebrate their special bonds. If you’re an only child, maybe you share that closeness with a best friend, a co-worker, a childhood pal, a cousin or various other relations that some consider to be as close as siblings. Soap opera stars were out in full swing yesterday posting past and current photos of themselves with their special someone, as well as pictures of their children and pets. Some even posted funny photos and videos of their onscreen daytime siblings – whether they get along or not. Soaps.com has collected a few to pass along to our readers who might have missed them.

We urge everyone, no matter where you live, to take a moment to tell your sibling just how much they mean to you. If you haven’t already, it’s not too late to do so by making a call, posting a fun photo or video on social media, grabbing a bite to eat, getting together for a drink… There are a million ways to express thanks to your siblings.

A long time ago throw back siblings forever
