This day is celebrated on first Sunday of August every year. And this time the day falls on 2nd August 2020.
Friendship day started back then in 1935 by the US congress in the honour of friends. This Day was later celebrated worldwide to appreciate this precious bond of friendship.
Friendship can be referred as close relationship between two or more people marked with mutual trust, understanding, love, care, respect, and concern.
Friendship is all about sharing the interests, emotions, feelings, happiness, sorrow and it’s also a commitment to stay together in ups and downs of life. It has no boundaries of caste, creed, religion, gender, age, etc. It’s free from all the bondages. This day is there to promote love and peace among human beings.
Friendship has typically been celebrated by tying “friendship bands” on your friends’ wrists. Exchanging flowers, chocolates, gifts, greeting cards, etc. to or spending the whole day with our friends by planning some outing, or just roaming around the city for a fun evening are some other ways of friendship day indulgence.
But now due to the on-going pandemic, meeting physically and tying the band is neither possible nor recommended. Also an outing is improbable.
But the celebration need not stop.
It can be done in different ways like
Plan a meeting online by using various apps available
Video call to your friends
Prepare a handmade greeting card for them
Prepare a photo collage of your friends and post it on social media
Make a video of all your past memories and send it to them
Send them their gift online or get their favourite cake or pastry delivered at their doorstep as a surprise
Tag your friends the memorable days in your life
Write poem, letter or anything else for them
Record an audio in your voice or sing a song for them
Play some instrument, record it and send it to your friends
Play online games with them
Put some more creativity and make this day memorable
Cook something special or bake a cake for them and share it with them
There are so many things to do to enjoy this special day all while sitting at home, keeping yourselves and your loved ones safe.
