INTERNATIONAL FRİENDSHİP DAV
Friends and friendship have been valued since the beginning of the civilized world. In 1935 The United States Congress announced the first Sunday of August as the National Friendship Day. Since then it has been celebrated as a popular festival annually.
Dedicating a day to friends became such a famous tradition that several countries adopted it to their culture. Recently it is celebrated on different dates but it is still a perfect day to express the emotion ’I care.’
India: It has become a big event in India. Honouring friends and friendship has become popular among youth and students. Friends meet to recollect memories. Children make friendship cards, special gifts to thank their friends’ presence in their lives. Argentina: Current and old friends gather to celebrate this very important day of their friendship. In the evening they race to have a memorable dinner at a restaurant, so this place has to be booked a week earlier. Exchange of friendship bands is also quite popular here.
Peru: A festival, which is called ’El dia del Amigo’, has been celebrated on the first Saturday in July since 2009.
It is an important event because they want to recognise the true friendship and differentiate its celebration from Valentine’s Day.
Bangladesh, Malaysia: In South Asia, they make this day unforgettable with the exchange of gifts like cards, flowers and jewellery.
B. If you had a friendship day in your country, how would you like to celebrate it?
