National Best Friends Day is ironically the only day devoted to the person with whom you might spend the other 364 days with. However, one day might be enough to acknowledge and appreciate the affection you have received from that individual. Celebrating National Best Friends Day can even make your friendship bond stronger because you reveal your feelings and how much you care to the person whom you call “best friend”.
History of National Best Friends Day
The practice of National Best Friend Day celebrations started out in 1935 when the US Congress made a decision to devote a day in tribute to close friends. Hence, the US Congress designated the first Sunday of August as Friendship Day and 8 June of every year as National Best Friends Day. With the time, several other countries also started to adopt this festival and up till now, almost every country in the world celebrates this event beautifully.
Some organizations got really inspired with the idea of this day and initiated many other friendship days with different traditions and names. For instance, Women’s Friendship Day is on the third Sunday in August. The third week of May is the Old Friends, New Friends Week. The whole of February is designated as the International Friendship Month. Keeping all these things in mind, National Best Friends Day is now considered as International Best Friends Day.
Best Friends Are Your Initiator
Henry Ford says “My best friend is the one who brings out the best in me.” This quote is as obvious as it gets. That’s what best friends are for, to encourage you, to be a pillar which creates a stage for you to move forward in life, to help you overcome hurdles. And most importantly make you laugh even at harsh times, even when life is behaving like an inferno to you.

Best Friends Day Poem
Below is a very small poem for you to sing it to your best mate.
I can borrow your book and call it mine.
Take a call from you and not care about the time
I can bug you,for no reason hug you.
Or refuse to give your ears a rest.
I can do it all because I know that by default.
Among all my friends, you are simply the best.
