If you have email, you’ve been sent something about Friendship Day at some point. It’s usually a cute message that we read (or not) then delete knowing it was created to have us send more email!
Truth is, there IS actually a Friendship Day – in fact there are two! Back in 1919 Hallmark establish National Friendship Day as the first Sunday in August. It died off over the years, but was resurrected in 1998 when the U.N. designated Winnie the Pooh as the World’s Ambassador of Friendship and set International Friendship Day as July 30.
So, celebrate your friends and friendships by sharing some cookies internationally on July 30 or nationally on August 7 this year. We’ll package them up into a sharable box or individually wrap them for single giveaways. No matter how you celebrate, it’s a great time to be thankful for friends.
