The National Best Friends Day is celebrated every year on 8th of June. This day is celebrated in  the honor of that one person in our life who stands by us through thick and thin, a person who makes us smile when life is not at its best and who is there to wipe away our tears at the time of heartbreaks.

It is to celebrate the presence of that special person in our life who is more of a guiding angel and the one who also makes us do craziest of things that make the best of memories.

This day is celebrated in the honor of none other than our best friend or our better half as we may call them in order to appreciate their constant effort of making our life a lot more easier and of course colorful.

It is a day to show them how much they mean to us and without their presence our life wouldn’t be the same. Though we don’t need a special day to celebrate this beautiful bond shared between two souls but celebrating this day has been an age old tradition as just like our parents, our best friend also plays a very important role in our life.

This day is similar to that of the National Friendship Day celebrated on the 7th of August every year. Let us now take a glance at the history and celebrations that mark the day.


Every special day no matter where is it being celebrated or who is celebrating it, has an origin. There are historical events behind the initiation of celebration on that particular day or maybe religious belief behind its observance. However the Best Friends Day has no such creator or origin. No studies or research have been able to find the root of incidents that led to the initiation of celebration of this particular day. For centuries people have been celebrating this day on the 8th of June in order to appreciate all the efforts made by a best friend and to just thank them wholeheartedly for being a constant support system.


Spending a day without our best friend by our side can seem to be an eternity. We need their consent before making every decision no matter how big or small it is. For us every day is a Best Friends Day however peoples from all over the world make some extra efforts to make their best friend feel special on this day. Celebrating this day is generally more common among the teenagers. They go for a wild night out on this day while many of them also prefer to spend the night at their best friend’s place and do crazy stuff together. Going out for lunch or dinner is also common. People might even go for long walks or just sit by a roadside café along with their best friend and go down the memory lane. Many people who live in a different city from that of their best friend’s take out time from their busy schedules to call up or Skype with their better halves on this day. Some people might stay in and have a back to back television series marathon.
