Elder or younger, brothers are always the same — protective, caring, reliable and trustworthy. And to honor them, May 24 every year is observed as Brother’s Day.

This is a day to show and tell them how much you love and care about them. Let them know they mean a lot to you. You can celebrate the day by giving them gifts or take them out for lunch or dinner.
