History of International Friendship Day

The tradition of dedicating a day in honor of friends began in the United States way back in 1935. As the years rolled on, the festival became more and more popular. Today, International Friendship Day is celebrated in tons of different countries around the world, from India to Paraguay. On this day, people spend time with their friends and express their appreciation for them. Sometimes they even exchange Friendship Day gifts – stuff like flowers, cards and wrist bands.

A “Honey” of a Mascot

Between 1935 and 1997, International Friendship Day didn’t have any sort of special character or figure – think someone like Santa Claus or the Easter Bunny – attached to it. But, in 1997, the United Nations named Winnie the Pooh as the world’s Ambassador of Friendship. Seems like they picked the right bear for the job!

Think Sindy and A.J. Can Be Friends?

  • Yeah, definitely. They just had a misunderstanding.
  • No way. A.J. doesn't deserve to be Sindy's friend.
  • Maybe if they both apologize for how they acted.

"Nope!" Ryan said as he pulled over. "Ryan!" Nemo said waking up. "We are camping!" Ryan smiled innocently. "I hate the outdoors!-"I love the outdoors!" Both Oynx, Abi and Jaida screamed. (Oynx doesn't like the outdoors.) "Hush, it's bootiful out here!" Abi said. "Mmmhmmm..." Oynx sulked. Gabby pulled out her phone. "There's no reception out here!" She screeched. "I'm out, this can't be good for my hair!" Nemo cried. "HI THERE!!" Greeted Bendy. "BENDY!!" Both Tori and Oynx screamed. (Fan girlin rn lol). Gabby's eyes get big "Who's he?" She asked. "Bendy!" Oynx said. "Yep I'm out!" Nemo said. "Wait where's Ryan?" Asked Nugget. "Uhm..." Abi said. "And where's Jaida? Oynx asked. "She was still sleeping in the van!" Tori said. "Omg!" Nugget cried. "Get on a tree!" Nemo said. "Nope..." Abi said. "Go away Abi, nobody asked for your opinion," Nemo said. "Wow, he left us..." Nugget said. TO BE CONTINUED
