There are many stories about Friendship Day. According to a report, Friendship Day started in 1935 in America. On the first Sunday of August, a person was killed by the US government. His friend was also shocked by that person’s death, and he also committed suicide in the grief of the friend’s departure. From that day, the government decided to celebrate the first Sunday of August as Friendship Day.

It is said that at that time, people used to send Friendship Day cards to their friends. Since then, this Friendship Day is being celebrated till date. However, on 27 April 2011, the United Nations fixed its date as 30 July. But in India, it is celebrated on the first Sunday of August.

According to another story, in the year 1930, a businessman named Joes Hall started this day. The merchant had chosen August 2 to celebrate this day, so that on this day all the friends could join together to express their gratitude for friendship and spend time with each other by giving cards to each other. Later, many countries of Europe and Asia started Friendship Day, carrying forward this tradition.
