International Day of Friendship

International Day of Friendship

Friendship Day is a day in several countries for celebrating friendship. It was first proposed in 1958 in Paraguay as the “International Friendship Day”. Friendship Day was originated by Joyce Hall, the founder of Hallmark cards in 1930 and was promoted by the greeting card National Association during the 1920s but met with consumer resistance – given that it was too obviously a commercial gimmick to promote greetings cards!
