About National Girlfriends Day
When is National Girlfriends Day? This holiday is always celebrated on August 1
Ladies, today is a very special day for you and your BFFs. It’s National Girlfriends Day. This August 1 holiday is a day for you to cherish just as much as you cherish your best friends. It’s a time to spend time together, to share your deepest secrets, and to enjoy the special, life-long bond of love and caring. Today we celebrate all of our girlfriends, and especially our BFF.
They say friends come and go. And, to some extent that’s true. But, we don’t let them go easily because they are precious. There’s a history we share, too. From the time we begin to crawl, we meet new friends to play with, go to school with, and share our dreams. Our BFFs are with us through thick and thin, in the good times, and the bad ones, too. They’re present during our happiest moments. And they are there to console each other when that rotten boyfriend breaks up with us.
So, use National Girlfriends Day to reinforce the bond, to share memories, and to just be together.
