‘Friendship Day’ is celebrated every year after year, on the first Sunday of August in India, and as the name suggests, it is a day which honours friendships, and the people in our life with whom we are not related by blood. This year, it will be celebrated on August 2.
This year many would not be able to celebrate the special day by meeting their friends due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Friendship Day was first proposed in Paraguay in 1958 as International Friendship Day and this year it was celebrated on July 30. The day is known to have first originated from Hallmark cards, by Joyce Hall, in 1930. The United Nations declared July 30 as the official International Friendship Day. In India, the day is marked on the first Sunday of August.
