Someone wise once said, “If you want to know a man, look at his friends!” We are all born with a family, but we choose our friends ourselves. They define us, and hold on to us during the toughest moments in life. Harry, Ron and Hermoine or Jai and Veeru… Cinema has often impersonated the unbreakable bond through legendary friendships onscreen. To celebrate the relationship, a special day known as “Friendship Day” is observed on the first Sunday of August every year in India. This time around, it falls on August 6.
The tradition first started in US in 1935, but it actually dates back to 1919. The day is celebrated on different dates in different countries. In several southern South American countries, particularly in Paraguay, the first World Friendship Day – International Friendship Day was first proposed in 1958 by the World Friendship Crusade. Later, on April 27, 2011, the General Assembly of the United Nations declared July 30 as the official International Friendship Day. In Oberlin, Ohio, Friendship Day is celebrated on April 8 each year.
To make the day noteworthy, friends tie wrist bands to express love for each other. Not just that, they also surprise each other by gifting flowers and greeting cards! But, if you’re not in the same city as your friends, don’t worry, you can still tell them what they mean to you.
Here are some of the best messages and quotes that you can send to them on WhatsApp or Facebook!

Tons of Crushes and stupid fights,
