Cousins Day is celebrated on July 24 every year, and is a great occasion to notice our cousins. They are our best friends or those with whom we are always in competition. With them around, any family lunch or dinner turns into a fun event. If you have cousins, be sure to send them congratulations.
There is no exact information about who and when Cousins Day started. According to statistics, it is cousins who unite American families; they become the guardians of family ties. Even if the family does not have a tradition of getting together, cousins maintain relationships, communicate, and they have common memories they discuss with pleasure. Psychologists note cousins are more likely to become close friends than siblings.
- In America, there is an ambiguous interpretation of the law on marriages between cousins. Marriage between cousins is prohibited in 24 states, 19 other states have no such prohibition, and in 4 more states it is allowed, but certain circumstances.
- The most famous cousins are Queen Elizabeth II and her husband, Prince Philip. They are direct descendants of Queen Victoria.
- Did you know Nicolas Cage and Sofia Coppola are cousins? At birth, the famous actor was named Nicolas Kim Coppola, but later he changed it in honor of a hero from the Marvel universe – Luke Cage.
