International Friendship Day was celebrated on July 30. However, India will celebrate its Friendship Day on August 2. The day intends to cherish the beautiful memories with friends and also make new ones.
Different countries celebrate it on varied dates. July 30 was marked as the World Friendship Day in 1958 by the World Friendship Crusade. This was the first time the date was proposed. Then on April 27, 2011, the General Assembly of the United Nations declared July 30 as official International Friendship Day.
Friendships enrich our lives, heal our broken souls, and soothe our unhappy hearts. Life would be a rather shabby journey if we had no friends. When it comes to the shittiest life advice, the silliest life goals, and even the most bizarre dreams – it is our friends who are always there for us. Humankind has survived centuries without therapists, precisely because we all had that one person in our lives who acted as the friend, philosopher, and guide.
