When is Friendship Day in 2019

Do you know from when Friendship Day came into existence? Well, many years ago in 1919 Joyce Hallmark was founded the Friendship Day, but by 1940 the market had dried up. However, in 1998 Winnie the Pooh was selected as the world’s ambassador of friendship at the United Nations.

Then after, in April 2011 the United Nations officially declared 30th July as an International Friendship Day. Although, in most of the countries, including India the Friendship Day is celebrated on the first Sunday in the month of August. So, this year the Friendship Day is going to celebrate on 4th August (the first Sunday of August 2019). As it falls on Sunday, it is quite convenient for everyone to celebrate Friendship Day with their friends. But, if you are not able to meet them, then send a token of true friendship to your dear friends in the form of friendship day wishes, greeting cards, gifts, chocolate, cakes, etc. on this special day and make them feel extra special.
