Friendship day was originally founded by Hallmark in 1919. It was intended to be a day for people to celebrate their friendship by sending eachother cards, but by 1940 the market had dried up, and eventually it died out completely. However, in 1998 Winnie the Pooh was named the world’s Ambassador of Friendship at the United Nations (believe it or not!), and in April 2011 the United Nations officially recognised 30th July as International Friendship Day; although most countries celebrate on the first Sunday of August!

According to the Friendship Day declaration, we 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”.

However, it’s all about celebration matters for social creatures. The tradition of dedicating a day for friends started in 1935 by US Congress. Within no time, the culture of celebrating friendship day took over the world and became International Friendship Day.

Though there is no clue for making this specific day as a Friendship day, it was also alleged to be a promotion by greeting card industry. Typical friendship day celebrations came with an idea of honouring relationships.

Meeting friends, exchange of greetings cards and friendship bands, gifts and flowers has been a part of traditional friendship day celebration. Back in 1997, fictional cartoon characters, Winnie-The-Pooh were declared as the brand Ambassador of International Friendship Day.
