Friendship Day is dedicated to all those people who stand next to their friend during their happiest as well as the saddest day of life and stand by their friend's side whenever they need the support.

Every year, it is celebrated on the first Sunday of August and this year it falls on the 8th. People tie friendship bands to their friends as a symbol of the everlasting bonding. On this day, along with the Friendship bracelets, friends also share gifts, cards, chocolates to cherish all the beautiful moments in which they lived together.

  • True friends will not have any reason for their friendship. So it can never be broken when they don't find that reason.
  • Friendship is unnecessary, like philosophy, like art... It has no survival value; rather is one of those things that give value to survival.

  • A good friend is like a computer; me 'enter' ur life, 'save' u in my heart, 'format' ur problems, 'shift' u 2 opportunities & never 'delete' u from my memory!
