The origin of Friendship Day goes back to the early 1900s. The founder of Hallmark Cards, Joyce Hall, is said to have founded ‘Friendship Day’ in 1919. He embarked on the concept of Friendship Day so that people can rejoice in the special bond of friendship.
However, by the year 1940, the trend faded away and friendship day was not really celebrated enthusiastically. In 1998, the United Nations named Winnie the Pooh as the World’s Ambassador of Friendship, Eventually in 2011, the United Nations recognized 30th July as the International Friendship Day.
However, in some countries, Friendship Day is celebrated on the first Sunday in the month of August. So, you get to pick your day! This year, you can celebrate Friendship Day either on Thursday, July 30, 2020 or on Sunday, August 2, 2020.
