Happy Friendship Day!


"A man that hath friends must shew himself friendly: and there is a friend that sticketh closer than a brother."
Proverbs 18:24
(King James Version)
This morning I got a surprise eCard from Carole, a friend and former co-worker, who now lives 1000 miles away. It looked like a Birthday greeting. She wished me a Happy Friendship Day!
Friendship Day? I looked it up on the internet. From the site, friendshipday.org, I learned this -

"Friendship Day celebrations take place on the first Sunday of August every year. The tradition of dedicating a day in honor of friends began in US in 1935. Gradually the festival gained popularity and today Friendship Day is celebrated in large number of countries including India. ..."

I wish all my readers, fellow writers, and bloggers a Happy Friendship Day. I thank you for following my blog and encouraging me - like a friend that sticks closer than a brother.

  1. What a blessing to hear from a friend like that, Susan. I was wondering how a person would find out about a holiday like that, and I found a site that gives daily holidays. Today, August 2, is sisters day. The site is called www.dailyholidays.net. FUN!
