Happy National Friendship Day 2020!

July 30, 2020

“The idea of Friendship Day was first introduced by the founder of Hallmark cards, Joyce Hal, in 1920. The day was celebrated by exchanging greeting cards, but it was in 1958 that Dr. Ramon Artemio Bracho coined the term ‘Friendship Day’ and started a foundation called The World Friendship Crusade.” (https://m.hindustantimes.com) ”On April 27, 2011 the General Assembly of the United Nations declared July 30 as official International Friendship Day.”https://www.ndtv.com

Usually, people celebrate Friendship Day by acknowledging a friend. It is customary to exchange small gifts, such as: wristbands, flowers, or cards. The goal is to somehow honor your friendship. This can be achieved with a quiet gesture.

What is the importance of friendship?

“A Harvard study concluded that having solid friendships in our life even helps promote brain health. Friends helps us deal with stress, make better lifestyle choices that keep us strong, and allow us to rebound from health issues and disease more quickly. Friendship is equally important to our mental health.” Sep 23, 2017https://www.liveabout.com

I cherish friendships. I believe that a good friend is as important as a family member. In some cases, a friend may be closer to you then a family member.

We can choose our friends. I encourage you to shoot for quality instead of quantity when it comes to choosing your friends. It is always better to have a few very close friends than many acquaintances, in my opinion.

There are many different kinds of friends. They are each unique. A friend can be male or female, young or old, and may even be our favorite animal!

How will you honor a friend today? Please share in the comments how you show a friend that you care. Thank you for sharing.
