About Best Friends Day
When is Best Friends Day? This holiday is always celebrated on June 8
Best Friend Day (BFF Day) is a time to enjoy and appreciate your good old buddy, your pal. On this June 8 holiday, honor and cherish the relationship you have with your Bestie. And, while you are at it, today is a good opportunity to nurture better relations with all of your friends, from your BFF to casual relationships.
If you’re lucky, you have a best friend. Not everyone does. If you are really lucky, you have several best friends. Yes, you can have more than one. They are very, very special people. You spend countless hours with your best friend going to events and activities or just hanging out. You share secrets, hopes, dreams, aspirations, and disappointments with your best friend.
Some folks say you can only have one best friend. This author disagrees. You can have a couple at the same time or several over time. Friends come and go for a variety of reasons, even BFFs are sometimes not forever. It’s the result of many things, including moving, changing schools or jobs, and more. We hope that you are lucky enough to have several best friends over the years.

“Friends can help each other. A true friend is someone who lets you have total freedom to be yourself – and especially to feel. Or, not feel. Whatever you happen to be feeling at the moment is fine with them. That’s what real love amounts to – letting a person be what he really is.” – – Jim Morrison
