This day of celebration dates back to 1935 when the US Congress proclaimed the first Sunday in August as Friendship Day. Unfortunately, it has now become more of a commercial day, and friends have become names on contact lists, greetings have become messages and love has become symbols on WhatsApp. This friendship day let’s break all barriers and celebrate friendship old school style!
This is the ideal day to spend some quality time with your buddies, who’ve been with you through thick and thin. Friends make us laugh a little louder, cry a little lesser, smile a lot brighter, and make your life a little, NO actually a lot better! True friends do the stupidest things with you, stay their craziest truest self’s around you, and kick you hard if you weren’t the same. They know the evil you’ve done, the saint you pretend to be, the drama you do, the countless lies you’ve told, and those dreaded insane secrets and yes in spite of all your idiocy, they love you for the very person you are!
This friendship day, it is the time we repay them back with some love, pamper and yeah a whole lot of shots! Happiness shots we mean, of course ;)
So buck up for this special day and plan some crazy, unique, exciting things to make your friend feel special this friendship day! Keep aside all your work and celebrate in happiness with those friends you could never make time for! Go back in time to relive those beautiful days with your friends when time used to just fly by and all the responsibility you ever had was meeting your friends on time, or bunking college every other day without getting caught. Relive those beautiful days, and bring joy to each other’s lives! Contact those long lost friends you cut off ties with and start over! Because life is too short! Spread love, peace, and happiness to all your friends.
Here are some crazy unique things you could do to make your friends feel special and relive those long lost moments with them.
MAKE A PERSONAL PHOTO BOOTH AND HAVE PHOTO PROPS
This is the best thing to do with your friend gang, especially if your gang loves capturing memories. Set up your own personal photo booth and hire a photographer, or if you have one in the gang, then nothing like it. Get some crazy, wacky props to compliment the fun-loving gang you’ll are and pose for some insane, candid, funny pictures and have your own photoshoot with your besties for the occasion.
GO OLD SCHOOL WITH LETTERS
Everyone’s wishing each other on Whatsapp or Facebook, and every other digital medium. HOW BORING! This friendship goes old school, and write a beautiful letter, vintage style, telling your friend how much they mean to you, and all those memories you’ll be cherished together, make it more colorful by sticking in some photos, or having small gifts packed along with the hand written letters, rolled into a vintage box or envelope, or add your own touch to it by giving it in a handmade envelope and have them delivered to your friend.
HELP YOUR FRIEND TICK ONE OFF THE BUCKET LIST
This is the best time to offer your help and make your friend tick one wish off the bucket list. Be it bungee jumping, a road trip, meeting his/her favorite celebrity! Whatever crazy, cheesy wish your friend has made a bucket list of, go ahead and surprise them by fulfilling any one of their wishes and ticking it off their bucket list!
GET A FRIENDS GANG T-SHIRT
What’s cooler than sharing the same t-shirt on such a special day! This friendship day gift your besties, with a t-shirt that completes the statement on your shirt or an identical shirt. If it’s a big girl gang, have some crazy quote printed and gift all your gang of friends the same print to wear on friendship day and party away!
A special occasion like this, calls for special moments! Have a lantern night. Light up lanterns with your gang of friends with a tiny note on top of each lantern, and let it fly away in the dark sky, on a beautiful night! Follow that with a lovely dinner for your friends at home, and prepare some delicious food, let the menu have all your friend’s favorite food. Would indeed make the day so much more special!
HOPE YOU ENJOY THIS FRIENDSHIP DAY WITH LOVE AND HAPPINESS!
