International Day of Friendship seeks to promote the role that friendship plays across all cultures.
To mark this special day, the United Nations encourages community groups, organisations, and governments to hold events that promote reconciliation, mutual understanding, and solidarity.
Originally founded by Hallmark in 1919, this was intended to be a day for people to celebrate their friendship by sending each other cards. But, by 1940, the market had dried up, and eventually, it died out completely.
In April 2011, the United Nations officially recognized 30th July as International Friendship Day.
Many countries celebrate on the first Sunday of August.
According to the International Friendship Day declaration, people are invited to ‘observe this day in an appropriate manner, in accordance with the culture and other appropriate circumstances or customs of their local, national and regional communities, including through education and public awareness-raising activities.’
