National Sister's Day is kind of a tough holiday to celebrate. There isn't as much fanfare around it as there is for Mother's Day or Father's Day, and you might not have any festivities planned. But you can send your girl one of these National Sister's Day memes so she knows you're thinking of her. It's the least you can do.
National Sister's Day is designed as an opportunity to think about all the great things sisters bring to your life, but the reality of sisterhood isn't all holding hands and wearing matching outfits. Even the closest of sisters fight (my sister and I are a great example), and those disagreements are part of what makes your bond with her so special. You can scream at her, pull her hair, tell her you hate her, and she'll still be your fiercest protector. Your sister is one of the first and only people who will love you unconditionally no matter what you do, and she should know how much that means to you.
These memes capture the realities of having a sister and show how the daily annoyances she brings are also the reasons you love her. Read on to pick a few you can send to your sis for National Sister Day, and keep a few handy for her birthday.
1. When Your Younger Sister Was Born
She betrayed your luxurious only child lifestyle the second she came on the scene, and this is how you'll be feeling about her existence for all eternity.

At least you don't have to share a shower as adults. (Hopefully.)
