Friendship Day is observed across the world on the first Sunday of August. International Friendship Day was initially suggested in Paraguay in 1958. It is also said to have originated in 1930 from Joyce Hall's Hallmark cards.

Happy Friendship Day 2021: Be it fond memories or difficult times, friends stand by us through thick and thin. True friendship is the most beautiful and gratifying thing in the world. Friendships are unquestionably special, and they brighten even the darkest of days, toughest of times, and make lively moments even happier and brighter. Whether you have a single friend you call your best friend or a group of friends you can't live without, friendships are unique and hold their own place. Friends are like that. Friendships teach us a lot about life and stand as a strong pillar of support. Friends are, as they say, an extended family that we choose.

Above all, they require love, nurturing, and care, just like any other relationship, which is why we celebrate Friendship Day every year to honour this extremely important bond. Friendship Day is observed every first Sunday in August. It falls on August 1 this year.

Several countries observe Friendship Day. The International Friendship Day was initially said to have started in Paraguay in 1958. However, Joyce Hall's Hallmark cards from 1930 are acknowledged to have inspired them. Finally, the United Nations designated July 30 as International Friendship Day.

In India, however, it is traditionally observed on the first Sunday of August.

Winnie the Pooh was named the worldwide Ambassador of Friendship at the United Nations by Nane Annan, the wife of former UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan, in 1998.

In the 1930s, Hallmark Cards created National Friendship Day as a marketing ploy. The creator, Joyce Hall, declared the day to be one to honour those closest to you, those who mean the most to you and to send them a card to let them know you're thinking of them. The marketing strategy formed an official holiday, which was declared by the US Congress in 1935 and is observed every year on the first Sunday of August.

Winnie the Pooh, the honey-loving tubby bear, was designated the world's Ambassador of Friendship by the United Nations in 1998. International Friendship Day was established in 2011 at the United Nations' 65th session.

While we all have fond memories of placing lovely friendship bands on our friends' wrists throughout high school and college, many people also commemorate the day by buying presents, sending heartfelt greeting cards, and lavishing love and care on their special friends.

Even if the sentimentality of the day has changed, the substance and spirit of the day have not. So, if you're spending Friendship Day virtually and just want to show your pals how much you care, send them these wonderful thoughts and greetings to make this Friendship Day special.
