Happy Friendship Day!

Hello, y'all amazing people there. You must have come to know that today we're celebrating Friendship day worldwide.
Let's talk about its origin first.
Friendship day was originally founded by Hallmark in 1919. It was planned to be a day for individuals to commend their companionship by sending one another cards, however by 1940 the market had become scarce, and inevitably it ceased to exist totally. In any case, in 1998 Winnie the Pooh was named the world's Ambassador of Friendship at the United Nations , and in April 2011 the United Nations formally perceived 30th July as International Friendship Day; albeit most nations celebrate on the main Sunday of August! So as needs be it is being commended overall today.


According to the Friendship Day declaration, we are invited to “observe this day in a proper manner, in accordance with the culture and other appropriate customs of their local, national and regional communities, including through education and public awareness-raising activities”.

True friendship is about putting your feet up and knowing that someone is there to bail you out when the world might walk out on you. Besides, as a support system in today's hectic world, friends are the most reliable sources for social, intellectual and creative stimulation.

In the present fast pace age of nuclear families where people have little time to spend with each other, friends have become indispensable. Then there are times when we find it tough to discuss matters with our family members or even with our spouse, it is on occasions such as these that friends come to our support. They guide us and become our pillar of strength when we need them most. And the best part is we don't really need to put things in words when communicating issues to our best friends. Most often friends understand us, just by looking at us or hearing our voice. This heart-to-heart bonding is what makes friendship so exclusive, setting it apart from all other relationships.

Significance of Expressing Love to Friends:
Howsoever strong a relationship maybe, it constantly needs to be nurtured with love and care. We must therefore never lose an opportunity to express our feelings and the warmth we may be experiencing for our friends. We may do this by sending flowers, a heartfelt card or a thoughtful gift. We may also do this by being together with a friend in times of joy or sorrow. The idea is to keep expressing our unconditional love and support to our dearest friend let the friendship evolve.

Significance of Friendship Day:
At times we get so busy in our daily lives that we start taking our friends for granted.
