My sister is truly the most important relationship in my life, besides my husband and kids. Even though everything is peachy now and we get along 99% of the time (and are able to work out our differences when we don’t), things haven’t always been sunshine and roses.

Every time my sister and I take a trip down memory lane, we reminisce about the ridiculous fistfight we got into because she wore my sweatshirt without asking. To qualify, we don’t have insane anger issues in need of management. At the time, she was 15, and I was 17. We were living in a small house in Colorado, where we had to share a room. This meant that we were sharing a bed and breathing down each other’s necks every minute. It was hell. Thankfully, the fistfight didn’t do much damage—even though no one was home at the time to break it up, so it lasted for 45 long minutes. Eventually, we got tired and started breaking each other’s makeup.

If you have a sister, you know how wonderful it is to have someone there for you through thick and thin, someone who will break your makeup right back when you get into a fight. In honor of National Sisters Day, here are 15 things only your sister will understand:

1. Why your mutual hatred for matching clothes will never die.

2. What it’s like to lock eyes and gang up on your parents to get your way.

3. Why it’s still fun to shop for her on her birthday.
