"A hug is worth a thousand words. A friend is worth more!’
Friendship Day is dedicated to the bond of friendship and companionship and is celebrated on the first Sunday of August every year. The concept of Friendship Day originated in USA in 1935 and is now celebrated worldwide. This is the day when we express our love for our friends by exchanging gifts like cards, flowers, bracelets and friendship bands.
Several countries across the world have adopted the tradition of dedicating a day to friends and with the commercialisation of Friendship Day has gained new heights. The festival is enthusiastically celebrated amongst the youth, and exchange of friendship bands is the highlight of the day where friends compete with each other as to who gets the maximum number of bands. Some people also throw Friendship Day parties to enjoy the day with friends.
It is the perfect occasion to show your friends that you care and to recollect sweet memories of the time spent together.
True friends are hard to find, so if you have one, make sure that you let your friend know on this day how much they mean to you.
