Friendships need to be celebrated! Some may say that you do not have any more reasons to celebrate the people closest to you but why not have another excuse to feel thankful for them especially this Friendship Day.
Friendship Day is a day for people to commemorate friendship by expressing their love and gratitude for their best friends and buddies. It was originally founded by Hallmark Cards, Inc. in 1919, for people to celebrate friendships by sending each other cards.
It was recently revived on social media since more and more users are sharing posts about their friends.
There are fun and creative ways to celebrate Friendship day even during this time of pandemic. You can show appreciation for your BFF or best bud even in the comfort of your own condo. Here are some tips to get you started:
- Share a photo of you and your BFF on social media
It’s time to pick your best photo together and share it on social media platforms like Facebook and Instagram. Reminisce about the special moment when you had this photo taken. Don’t forget to write a short caption that can either be about that photo or a simple appreciation message for him/her.
- Schedule a video call
Why not set a video conference call with your best friend or the whole group! This might be a good time to gather them all together “virtually”. Take this time to catch up and laugh over your funny and crazy memories. Make sure to take your group photo before the call ends for remembrance on your 1st #FriendshipDay video conference call.
