Midlanders Share Their Besties on National Best Friends Day
National Best Friends Day is celebrated every June 8. This day celebrates the bonds we share with our best friends. The idea behind this day is to honor those friendships that have strengthened us and kept us strong through the good times and the bad. This important relationship has been designated by the U.S. Congress as the official day to be remembered by Congress on June 8.
This special day has many traditions. For example, people often celebrate with a get-together, or go out for a meal at a favorite cafe. Other traditions are more elaborate, such as dressing up for the occasion and arranging a fancy dinner. Whatever you do, be sure to exchange gifts on this day as a way to commemorate your best friend and remind them of your special bond.
It is a well-known fact that spending time with friends improves our sense of happiness and self-confidence. It also increases our sense of purpose, belonging, and so, overall happiness. To recognize this special relationship, the US Congress established National Best Friends Day (March 31, 1935). It was initially a small celebration, but social media quickly made it a worldwide event.
