"Two are better than one; because they have a
good reward for their labour. For if they fall, the
one will lift up his fellow: but woe to him that is
alone when he falleth; for he hath not another
to help him up."
Friendship Day Quotes by: Bible: Ecclesiastes

International Friendship Day is a day for
celebrating friendship . The day has been
celebrated in several southern South
American countries for many years,
particularly in Paraguay, where the first
World Friendship Day was proposed in 1958.


Initially created by the greeting card industry,
evidence from social networking sites shows a
revival of interest in the holiday that may
have grown with the spread of the Internet,
particularly in India, Bangladesh, and


Digital communication modes such
as the Internet and mobile phones may be
helping to popularize the custom, since
greeting friends en masse is now easier than
before. Those who promote the holiday in
South Asia attribute the tradition of
dedicating a day in honor of friends to have
originated in the U.S. in 1935, but it actually
dates from 1919. The exchange of Friendship
Day gifts like flowers, cards and wrist bands
is a popular tradition of this occasion. [1][2]
Friendship Day celebrations occur on different
dates in different countries. The first World
Friendship Day was proposed for 30 July


On 27 April 2011 the General Assembly
of the United Nations declared [3] 30 July as
official International Friendship Day.
However, some countries, including India, [4]
celebrate Friendship Day on the first Sunday
of August. In Oberlin, Ohio, Friendship Day is
celebrated on 8 April each year. [5] It’s one of
the most popular events of the world
especially to the youth community who want
to dedicate this complete day to their most
special friends by sharing friendship day


"Each friend represents a world in us, a world
possibly not born until they arrive, and it is only
by this meeting that a new world is born."
