Only Child Day
April 14, 2016 2:10am CST
April 10 was "Sibling Day" on Facebook. I have seen that one before. However, this year is the first year I saw April 12 being called "Only Child Day". I'm glad the people without siblings get acknowledged too. Especially because I am one of those people. I always wanted a sibling, but never got one. I also know that some of my friends wished they didn't have siblings! But now that they are adults, most of them are happy to have siblings. What do you think of celebrating these two days on Facebook?

Every day they have something to celebrate but it leaves some out. It's known that Facebook can make others feel isolated and not important. I see all those "happy sibling day" posts and it saddened me because I don't have a relationship with mine.

Happy only child day! There were many days when I was convinced that my parents should NEVER have had eight children (I'm number 8, so I would have been the first one eliminated)...as to the various this that and the other thing days, I think they are kind of silly--but as long as they don't become the high-pressure events that Mother's Day and Valentine's Day have become I think it's harmless fun.
