National Cousins Day: National Cousins Day falls on the calendar every July 24 and is the perfect day to send some love to those family members we call cousins. Whether they were our first best friend or first antagonist, cousins are the people who made family get together fun – or at least more tolerable and less awkward – when we were kids. Whether close cousins or distant cousins, friends, or foes, those of us who are lucky enough to still have cousins around should think about celebrating them today. National Cousins Day is a perfect day to let all of your cousins know how much they mean to you.
“Cousins are people that are ready-made friends, you have laughed with them and remember good times from a young age, you have fights with them but you always know you love each other, they are a better thing than brothers and sisters and friends cause there all pieced together as one.” – Courtney Cox.

Other people have theorized that it was started by greeting card companies as a marketing trick to sell more cards. Regardless of its origin, however, its purpose is still pretty noble.
