Today is International Friendship day, a day to celebrate with the near and dear ones who love you and care for you and make you laugh more and smile brighter.
The founder of Hallmark Cards, Joyce Hall,is said to have founded 'Friendship Day' in 1919. He embarked on the concept of Friendship Day so that people can rejoice in the special bond of friendship.
However, by the year 1940, the trend faded away and friendship day was not really celebrated enthusiastically. In 1998, the United Nations named Winnie the Pooh as the World's Ambassador of Friendship, Eventually in 2011, the United nations recognised 30th July as the International Friendship Day.
In some countries, Friendship Day is celebrated on the first Sunday in the month of August. So, you get pick your day! This year, you can celebrate Friendship Dayn either on Thursday, July 30, 2020 or on Sunday , August 2, 2020.
Due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic and the ongoing lockdown, it may not be possible for all to get together and celebrate the day . However, the special day could start with a message that says how much you care.
