It is celebrated on the first Sunday of August and this year it falls on 2 August. It is celebrated in various countries. The United Nations General Assembly proclaimed the International Friendship Day in 2011 with an aim that friendship between peoples, countries, cultures, etc. inspire peace efforts, bring unity and build bridges between communities.
Friendship is not how U for
Get but how U forgive
Not how U listen but how U
Not what U see but how U feel,
and not how U let go but how U hold on!
