         What is Friendship Day?

What is friendship day 

Every year, we celebrate Friendship Day  on the first Sunday of August. Friendship Day is the day on which we commemorate a special relationship in our life, which is of a friend.
Why and When is Friendship Day celebrated?
In 1930, Joyce Hall, a businessman who founded Hallmark cards introduced the concept of Friendship Day where people would celebrate a day with their friends and send each other cards. He chose August 2 as the date for the celebration. Later, people understood that this was a commercial scheme and the holiday soon died out in 1940s.
The date is unknown but many countries in Europe and Asia started the celebration of Friendship Day and adopted the custom in their country.

On July 20, 1958, Dr. Ramon Artemio Brach, during a dinner with his friends in Paraguay, proposed the idea of Friendship Day and later, this resulted in the formation of World Friendship Crusade. The Crusade promotes the feeling of friendship, unity and fellowship irrespective of religion, race, colour, caste and creed.
"Being in love with each other
Doesn't mean you have to be lover.
Sometime you just have to be Friends "

The World Friendship Crusade then convinced the United Nations to recognise July 30 as World Friendship Day. The UN-Secretary General, Kofi Annan, announced Winnie the Pooh as the ambassador of friendship.
United Nations celebrates International Friendship Day on July 30. And several countries like India, celebrate Friendship day on the first Sunday of August.

Friendship is based on love, sacrifice, trust and consideration of mutual welfare. True friendship is a solace and a boon. Those men are fortunate indeed who have got really true and sincere friends.Friendship is based on love, sacrifice, trust and consideration of mutual welfare. True friendship is a solace and a boon.
