It’s been a crazy year. We had a lot to be happy about and many things went well for our world. But it wasn’t all smooth sailing – we also had several difficult moments in 2017. Sometimes, celebrating the good times means forgetting the bad ones, but what if there was another way? In this article, we explore the idea of an alternative day to celebrate friendship with your loved ones.
What is Friendship Day?
There isn’t a single day like Friendship Day, but there are various days throughout the year that we can celebrate friendship. Here are a few ideas:
-On the first day of school, let your kids know that it’s important to make friends and be kind to one another. Celebrate by getting them something special for being such good friends.
-International Friendship Day is celebrated on September 25th each year. This day is meant to bring awareness to the importance of friendship and globalism. Exchange gifts with your friends and family, or donate to a charity in their name.
-Good Friday is an excellent time to reflect on all the friendships that have been lost over the course of the year. Have a memorial service for your fallen friends, or make a heart-felt card and give it to them on Good Friday morning.
The History of Friendship Day
As we grow older, we learn more and more about the importance of friendship. It can be said that friendship is the key to happiness, and without it, many of us would find it difficult to get through the tough times. Now, what better way to celebrate this important relationship than by declaring a day specifically dedicated to it? That’s why, on Friendship Day (which is celebrated on July 24th), we take a look back at some of the most famous friendships in history.
One such friendship is that between Charles Darwin and Alfred Russel Wallace. While both men were independently developing their theories of evolution, they never would have been able to do so if it weren’t for their friendship. They were able to discuss their ideas openly and even helped each other publish their work. In addition to their scientific collaboration, Darwin and Wallace also enjoyed spending time together socially. They were both members of the British Association for the Advancement of Science (BAAS) and spent many happy evenings discussing philosophy and science.
Another friendship that has come to symbolize love, tolerance, and understanding is that between Nelson Mandela and Walter Sisulu. These two men had a profound impact on the lives of South Africans and the international community. Mandela and Sisulu’s friendship was instrumental in transforming South Africa from a country rife with repression to a place where people can live freely, regardless of their race or gender. Mandela and Sisulu were not only political allies, but they also shared many other common interests. Both men loved music, especially jazz and classical music, which is evident from the many concerts they attended together. They also enjoyed walking by the beach and playing cricket.
How can you celebrate friendship day in your daily life?
One great way to celebrate friendship day is to spend time with your friends. Whether you go out for a meal or just hang out at home, being around friends is the perfect way to celebrate this special day. You can also show your appreciation for your friends by doing something nice for them, like taking them on a fun trip or spending time with them in their favorite activity. If you can’t get away from your friends, make sure to take some time to reflect on the amazing relationships you have and appreciate all that they bring to your life.
Some Pros and Cons of the Idea
There are pros and cons to the idea of celebrating friendship day, but which day would be the best fit for this? Some people believe that it should be celebrated on a day when people can spend time with their friends, such as a weekend or holiday. On the other hand, there are also those who feel that it should be a more somber occasion, similar to Valentine’s Day. Ultimately, it would be up to each individual community to decide which day is best suited for their own celebration.
