International Friendship Day

Just like how we have a day designated to celebrate mothers, fathers, grandparents and even your pets, there is also a special day chosen to honor our friendships. International Friendship Day falls on the first Sunday in August, so this year we will be giving a shout out to our BFFs on August 5.

Here are some interesting facts about the “friendliest” holiday of the year:

  • The tradition began in the United States back in 1935.
  • Friendship day is celebrated world-wide, and is big in countries like India, Switzerland, and Paraguay.
  • Winnie the Pooh is the designated world Ambassador of Friendship.

Need some suggestions on how to celebrate Friendship Day?
