It’s a long 1 year, you all are with me and in that celebrating moment, I have planned a surprise for you. In coming post, I will reveal the surprise! So, stay tuned!
Well friends, let’s me allow to say something about Friendship Day.
Friendship Day is dedicated to the bond of friendship and companionship. The International Day of Friendship is a United Nation’s (UN) day that promotes the role that friendship plays in promoting peace in many cultures. It is observed on July 30 each year. The idea of honoring friendship has been appreciated by people in many countries of the world. With the advancement in the field of science and technology, connecting to friends on the wonderful occasion of Friendship Day has become easier. It is the perfect occasion to show your friends that you care and to recollect sweet memories of the time spent together. True friends are hard to find, so if you have one, make sure that you let your friend know on this day how much they mean to you.
In India, Friendship Day is celebrated on the first Sunday of August every year. This year 2013, it will be celebrated on 4th August. The occasion began as a small event, to commemorate the relation shared by friends. Today, it has taken the shape of a grand festival. Over the passing years, the festivities related to Friendship Day have become even more colorful. The exchange of gifts, flowers, friendship bands and greeting cards has become an important part, rather, a tradition of Friendship Day. Apart from the exchange of gifts, partying all through the night is one of the recent developments of Friendship Day which is seen largely among the youngsters.
That’s all for today. Enjoy the weekend and keep watching the space for a great surprise! Take care of your family and yourself! Have a good day/ afternoon/evening/night! Namaskar.
