A day for cousins of every stripe. Cousins Day
When it comes to honouring family members, parents and siblings get most of the attention—but today, let us sing the praises of our cousins on Cousins Day! These extended family members hold a special place in our familial structure and in our hearts. They're not quite siblings, but more than mere friends: when we're young, they're the compatriots we go adventuring with while the adults stay behind to make small talk. Maybe you've fallen out of touch with your cousins, or maybe you're still close—either way, today's a great day to reach out, say hello, and reminisce. That's what it looks like these zebras are doing; there's likely a set of cousins or two in this group that's horsing around on the savannah in Tanzania.
