Friends are love; friends are life. Without them, life would be meaningless and of no value. Friends are the only relationship that does not require any forced bond. Let’s check if there are any deals and sales on this friendship day.
Friendship is one of the most endearing things in human relationships. As the quote from the famous author Albert Camus goes, Do not walk in front of me, I may not follow. Do not walk behind me, I may not lead. Walk beside me and be my friend.
Friendship is all about equality and sharing our joys and sorrows together. It gives meaning and adds spice to our lives. We are social animals and thrive on mutual cooperation. And friendship is one of the basic building blocks of social harmony. No wonder people have revered the joys of friendship for ages. Stories and legends in many cultures all over the world are filled with tales of friends who sacrificed their lives for each other.
But even though friendship has been revered from time immemorial, the tradition of celebrating it on a special day is comparatively recent. The idea of dedicating a day in honor of friends and friendship was initially created by the greeting card industry. It was originally promoted by Joyce Hall, the founder of Hallmark Cards, in 1930. Originally Friendship Day was intended to be on the 2nd of August every year and it was chosen because the day was the center of the largest lull between holiday celebrations.
But now International Friendship Day celebrations take place on the first Sunday of August every year. Originally started in the USA, Friendship Day is now celebrated in many different countries all over the world. It is an occasion for celebrating friendship and honoring our friends.
On Friendship Day, people spend time with their friends and express their admiration and love for each other. Some of the most popular traditions on the occasion are the exchange of flowers, wristbands, friendship day cards, and other gifts.
So, celebrate the occasion by gifting your friends with heartfelt and memorable presents. Get them something special or make one that complements their personalities. Your friendship gifts do not have to be necessarily expensive.
It is not the price and the value of the gifts that count; it is the thought and feeling behind the friendship gift that really matters. Your friends will understand even if you cannot get them expensive gifts; after all, nobody knows and understands you better than your dear friends. But they will definitely appreciate the time and effort you have invested in getting a gift for them on the occasion of Friendship Day.
