Friendship day is celebrate every year august 1st Sunday. A Friendship bracelet is a bracelet given by one person (friend) to another as a symbol of Friendship.
The day has been celebrated in several southern South American countries for many years, particularly in Paraguay, where the first World Friendship Day – International Friendship Day was proposed in 1958.
Initially created by the greeting card industry, evidence from social networking sites shows a revival of interest in the holiday that may have grown with the spread of the Internet, particularly in India, Bangladesh, and Malaysia. Digital communication modes such as the Internet and mobile phones may be helping to popularize the custom, since greeting friends en masse is now easier than before.
Some friends acknowledge each other with exchanges of gifts and cards on this day. Friendshipbands are very popular in India, Nepal, Bangladesh and parts of South America. With the advent of social networking sites,Friendship Day is also being celebrated online. The commercialization of the Friendship Day celebrations has led to some dismissing it as a “marketing gimmick”. But nowadays it is celebrated on the first Sunday of August rather than 30 July. However, on 27 July 2011 the 65th Session of the United Nations General Assembly declared 30 July as “International Day of Friendship“. The idea of a World Friendship Day was first proposed on 20 July 1958 by Dr. Ramon Artemio Bracho during a dinner with friends in Puerto Pinasco, a town on the River Paraguay about 200 miles north of Asuncion, Paraguay.
