Another holiday! I actually found out this holiday existed last year. I know, some might think its another Hallmark and Candy and basically another “Time for Business” day but if you think about it it’s actually quite nice. Friendship Day might sound like a Middle of the Year Extension to Valentines Day.

“Don’t walk in front of me,
I may not follow.
Don’t walk behind me,
I may not lead.
Walk beside me and
be my friend.” – Albert Camus

For those that don’t know (and I know many who don’t) Friendship day is celebrated on the first Sunday of August, and as the name might give away it is a day to celebrate your friends. A lot of people spend time with their friends, some give gifts. Basically its a day to let your friends know how much they mean to you (We all have that friend that’s always there for us). Although you can (and would be nice) to do this in any other day of the year, the cool this is that not a lot of people know about this holiday. Why is it it “cool”? Because it can come to your friends as a surprise! You can let them know it’s a holiday too.

It’s nice to tell your friends that you value their friendship. Perhaps with a song, a letter, a card (E-Card), maybe a gift, a treat, even just saying it!

Ah what better way to finish this post on Friendship Day than with a song!

Smile, because you are someone’s friend.
