Every year on the first Sunday of August, Friendship Day is commemorated. In India, it will be celebrated on August 1 this year. The day commemorates the importance of friends in our lives and the positive impact they have. A friend makes everything easier, whether it's accompanying us on a trip or simply listening to our issues and assisting us in finding a solution. It's not just about their presence while we're going through a difficult time; it's also about when they're there to share our joy and celebrate our achievements. It is fair to assume that if we did not have friends, the world would be a considerably more difficult place to live in.
When Is Friendship Day 2021?
On July 30, the International Day of Friendship is observed. However, various nations, such as India, Bangladesh, the United Arab Emirates, Malaysia, and the United States, commemorate Friendship Day on the first Sunday of August.
History Of Friendship Day
Few people are aware that the United Nations General Assembly declared the International Day of Friendship in 2011. According to the proclamation, friendship between peoples, cultures, countries, and individuals may inspire peace efforts and develop bridges across communities. The resolution emphasises the importance of including more young people in community activities as future leaders, as well as the promotion of international awareness and respect for diversity. The UN also invites countries, international organisations, and civil society groups to hold events, activities, and initiatives on this day to support the international community's efforts to promote dialogue among civilizations, solidarity, mutual understanding, and reconciliation.
Significance Of Friendship Day
In a lot of ways, Friendship day is significant. What would we be if we didn't have that one special friend that makes everything so much easier? Furthermore, the UN stated that the world is confronted with numerous issues, including poverty, war, and human rights violations. Peace, security, growth, and social harmony are all under threat as a result of these difficulties.
As a result, promoting and defending a shared sense of human solidarity is critical in confronting and overcoming these obstacles. Friendship is the most basic and unadulterated form of any relationship.
How To Celebrate Friendship Day
Friends exchange cards, go out and tie friendship bands to one another to commemorate this day. The day is especially popular among students in high school and college. For many, the day also signifies the introduction of new individuals into their lives, as new friends are made on this day.
