International Day of Friendship, August 7th 2022
"National Friendship Day occurs every year on the first Sunday of August — August 7, 2022 — and celebrates the importance of loving, platonic relationships. National Friendship Day was originally a marketing strategy for Hallmark Cards in the 1930s. Founder Joyce Hall designated the day would take place on August 2 and decided it would be a day to celebrate the people closest to you — and send them a card or two in the process. It soon became a bigger deal than originally planned when the 1935 U.S. Congress pronounced the first Sunday of August as National Friendship Day.
After a tough year, friends have proven they have always been there for us. Choose Friendship Day 2022 to appreciate the connections you have in life or use this holiday to reach out to past friends and rekindle that bond"
