Friends who are like family, good friends, and even frenemies are cherished on International Day of Friendship on July 30.

History Of International Day Of Friendship

We live in a tough world. Amidst miscommunication, mistreatment, lack of trust, discrimination, and cultural conflict, the seeming priority of peace has little presence in a global society. There is really no reason why the world should not exist in some harmonious form. We have the United Nations to thank for helping to remind us all that it is good in this world. We first introduced International Friendship Day in 2011; This special day goes beyond connecting people and builds bridges between cultures, countries, and even ideologies.

Friendships and connections are synonymous with bonds, and forming these common bonds goes beyond sharing a trait, trait or favorite pastime with another person or group, but also includes promoting a global commitment and understanding of diversity and inclusion. Even in our differences, we can find common ground. Physical appearance, differences in opinions, political views, tastes, music, and so on are not reasons to separate people. Relationships are bigger than that, and the United Nations works every July to promote generosity and unity.

Celebrating friendship with something as simple as a short note, hanging out for coffee, going to a concert, or a trip to the mall are all ways to find common ground. Again, we all have more in common than we realize. And any idea that reduces the amount of hatred and contempt spread around the world is the kind we want to share. We like to think we all have something in us.

Before the United Nations gave its title, the first World Friendship Day was proposed in 1958 by the World Friendship Crusade, an international civil society organization promoting a culture of peace through friendship.

International Day Of Friendship Traditions

On International Friendship Day, those friends who are there for us, call us out on our stubbornness, sacrifice their time for us when everyone else is busy being adults, show up in the middle of the night to cheer us up, and even our long-distance friends whose friendships last across borders. There are, to be celebrated.

Friendship means something different to everyone. And the bond of friendship also changes. People we have known for a long time may not be close to us, however, we may consider someone we have only known for a short time as our best friend. This is why traditions and celebrations are different for everyone. There are less important ways to celebrate the day like hanging out with friends and doing our ‘things’ or more elaborate ways like hosting parties, exchanging gifts, and expressing how important they are in our lives. Another common tradition on International Friendship Day is to catch up and reconnect with friends we haven’t been in touch with for a while.

  1. Meet a friend for lunch, dinner, or happy hour

    Have you not seen friends recently? Or, perhaps some with whom you do the same activities over and over again. Why not switch things up and plan a casual outing with friends for International Friendship Day, to make new memories and share some laughs.

  2. Attend a community cultural celebration

    Is there a community center near you that you’ve been wanting to check out but haven’t had a chance to yet? It’s the perfect opportunity to check out the schedule and attend any events held there, meet some new people, and learn about a new culture or lifestyle that already exists within your front door block.

  3. Send a greeting card

    Hallmark introduced us to the idea of celebrating friendship, so why not send a note to some of your friends on International Friendship Day to let them know how much they mean to you?

  1. Celebrating friendship started with Hallmark

    When Hallmark introduced greeting cards to us in the 1930s, the idea of reaching someone through the mail to let them know they crossed your mind or deserved a quick “hello” soon followed.

  2. Being a better friend

    Reflections are important for growth, and growing a community that reflects who you want to be is crucial—this is a great time to step back and reflect on the connections that already exist in your life.

  3. New friends

    All friendships begin with a conversation — this is the perfect day to reconnect with old friends or open yourself up to new connections.

  4. Some countries have earlier celebrations

    Although July 30 is the day designated by the United Nations, there are some countries that prefer to have earlier, extended celebrations in July, August, and/or April, such as South America, Bangladesh, India, and Malaysia.

  5. Anyone can celebrate

    Learning to overcome hate and accept people from different backgrounds early is a great way to teach kids how to accept others, be open to learning new things, and appreciate, as well as spread, kindness a great trait to start with.
