Friendship Day

Date When Celebrated : 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, your friends 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 with a friend 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.

I wish you a very fine day, my friend.

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!  


Today's Quote: " Lots of people want to ride with you in the Limo. But, what you want is someone who will take the bus with you when the limo breaks down." - - Oprah Winfrey


History and Origin of Friendship Day:

In 1935, the United States Congress, proclaimed the first Sunday of August as National Friendship Day. Following the popularity and success of Friendship Day in US, several other countries adopted the tradition of dedicating a day to friends. Friendship Day is celebrated by several countries around the world.

In 1997, the United Nations named Winnie the Pooh as the world's Ambassador of Friendship.
