When : the first Sunday of August
Friendship Day is a day to nurture relationships, new and old. It's a really easy and fun day to celebrate.
Start the day by getting in touch with some old friends. Start early. Chances are, they know it's Friendship Day. You want to beat them to the punch, and contact them first. Phone calls, emails, Ecards, are great tools. See if you can make plans for lunch today, or some other day (soon).
Then, catch up to some of your current pals and buddies. Make sure to do some interesting things with them before the day is through. As you go through the day, be ever vigilant to spot an opportunity to make a new friend. Finding new friends today, is a real feather in your cap.
One thing is for certain...... if you put your all into the spirit of Friendship Day, you will have a great, great day.
Happy Friendship Day to people all over the world!
Origin of Friendship Day:
Our research did not find the creator, or the origin of this day. We have found some documentation suggesting that this day was created by the U.S. Congress in 1935. We are trying to verify this.
Our research did uncover that this appears to be an "International" day. A number of sites referred to it as "International Friendship Day". We like the idea of fostering and promoting friendships around the world.
