The bond between brothers and sisters is undeniable. They are there through good times and bad, and always have our backs! You can be an ultra dork, and they’ll go right along with you. Nobody knows us quite like a brother or a sister and, with the holidays right around the corner, we’re feeling the love. As a tribute to siblings everywhere, here are 5 reasons we can’t (and wouldn’t want to) live without them.

1. We share the same DNA.

This attribute is important, first of all, because if we needed a kidney, they would be the best chance for a match! We also share a rich heritage with them that can be passed on from generation to generation. Plus, more often than not, we share the same dorky personality!

2. Siblings are our first friends — and enemies.

Sibling rivalry goes on in most families. One minute brothers and sisters can be beating each other to a pulp over the last waffle, and the next they are best friends. This usually continues — forever.

3. We always have a partner in crime.

Most of the time, siblings conspire against their parents — together. If there is something they want or if they want to keep a secret from their parents, siblings can make a dynamic team! Your unsuspecting parents will never know what happened — until years later when you become an adult and you tell them what you did.

4. Siblings always have your back.

You can trash talk your sibling until the cows come home, but the second anyone else throws shade his way, it’s on!

5.  You always have a person to help you through life’s hard times.

This game called life isn’t easy, and as siblings become adults, they will need each other to lean on through hard times. When all is said and done, and you have all grown up and moved out of the house, your siblings will become your best friends — plus they know too much! Nobody knows you better and accepts you for who you are — the good, the bad, and the ugly.
