Friendship Day History

Friendship Day was originally promoted by Joyce Hall, the founder of Hallmark cards in 1930, intended to be 2 August and a day when people celebrated their friendships by sending cards. The second of August was chosen as the centre of the largest lull between holiday celebrations. Friendship Day was promoted by the greeting card National Association during the 1920s but met with consumer resistance - given that it was her too obviously a commercial gimmick to promote greetings cards. By the 1940s the number of Friendship Day cards available in the US had dwindled and the holiday largely died out there. There is no evidence to date for its uptake in Europe; however, it has been kept alive and revitalised in Asia, where several countries have adopted it.


In honor of Friendship Day in 1998, Nane Annan, wife of UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan, named Winnie the Pooh as the world's Ambassador of Friendship at the United Nations. The event was co-sponsored by the U.N. Department of Public Information and Disney Enterprises, and was co-hosted by Kathy Lee Gifford.

 Friendship Activities and Ideas of Celebration 


A simple idea would be to write a nice card for your friend telling them how much you appreciate their friendship. Please be open in your expression and spill out your heart to them! To touch your friend's heart buy or make them a small present such as flowers, chocolates, friendship bands, a cake, or anything that your friend will appreciate! And how about leaving the gift anonymously for added intrigue! Give a warm hug to your friend and let them that have a special place in your heart! Make it a point to call or SMS every one of your friends, old and new, on Friendship Day to let them know you care. Write your friend a web page to express your friendship online Ring up a radio station and dedicate a song to Friendship Day and your friends! A wonderful idea would be to make some new friends on the occasion by becoming a doer of RAOK - Random Acts of Kindness Buy your friend a ticket to the theatre so you can enjoy a great show together. If you can't afford this, downscale to the movies! Give your friend a Friendship Bracelet (made or bought) to symbolize your friendship. Grab a camera or visit a photo studio and take some photos of you and your friends enjoying yourselves! This is beautiful way to preserve memory.
