Many people say that friendship day is just a marketing gimmick by the card making companies, to promote their products. And many say that they do not need a special day to express their friendship. But the origin of this day dates back to 1935, in the U.S when the U.S State Congress declared the first Sunday of August as a ‘National Friendship Day’. Later many countries adapted it.
This is one day that I like to celebrate. I don’t think it is silly to tie friendships bands on your good friends. It is simply a way of affirming ‘Yes, you matter to me and I shall be there for you.’ These are words which we don’t often speak. But tying a friendship band says all of it, and more, without words.
What is Friendship?
A good friendship is when you can talk about anything and everything. You’re always there for one another – whatever life has in store.

I met you as a stranger, took you as a friend,
I hope our long friendship will never end.
Our friendship is like a magnet, it pulls us together,
Because no matter where we are, our friendship will last forever!
The best of friends,
Can change a frown,
Into a smile,
When you feel down.
Thrity and Pari are just the friends I cant do without.
When you work with like minded colleagues, they get real close to be very good friends. I am blessed with my bunch of beautiful girls of Petit.
Happy to be connected with some of my friends who are far away yet close to my heart.
My foodie friends I connect to with such ease. Is that because we bond over food? No, its more than just food, a bunch of sweethearts I am so fond of.
Thank you Twitter for giving me some new online friends whom I also meet at events.
