July 24th Cousins Day

So if your parents had any brothers or sisters chances are you have cousins. My Dad’s sister had two children, a boy and a girl and they would come visit us normally once a year when we were younger. My father was a farmer so, naturally my sister and I lived on the farm. My Uncle was in the Marine Corp and was assigned to different places so my cousins would come stay with us for a month or so, normally during the summer. We had an extra house on the farm so they, and my Aunt, would live there so really it was more like having friends close by. I loved those times, though I was the youngest and often got left out of a lot of stuff. Since then another sister was added to my family and I have lost track of my cousins. Don’t let that happen to you.

How to celebrate – Hold a family reunion. Keep in touch with your extended family. Start a family tree.
