My dear all mylotter friends "HAPPY FRIENDSHIP DAY". Tomorrow is friendship day and I think I am the first person who are saying this word to you AM I right? This friendship Day takes place on the first Sunday of August no specific date for this day. Lots of greetings and friendship belts are launched in the market. This day is celebrate in all over the India. Now this trend is most popular among the college boys and girls. Now mobile phone is also play a popular role to communicate the friendship message via sms. This day shopkeeper are feel very happy because the students purchase costly greetings and friendship belt. How you will celebrate your friendship day tomorrow share your views and tell me you are sending me my friendship belt or not. My friendship is important for you or not.

Friendship is not something to celebrate on a single day. That's just commercialisation gone mad, like "Secretary Day" and all the other ridiculous nonsense that comes out of the US (mostly). To me, this is a horrible idea. Friendship is something that doesn't need a special day or a gift. It's something that's always there, that we should always show we appreciate. By defining a day as 'Friendship Day' and commercialising it so cynically, we demean the nature of friendship. Just my opinion, of course.

Ohhh sir thanks for response it means you dont like this idea yes I also seen my father in law and mother is law is also not like this idea even my husband is also not like this but this day is only for sharing joy and happiness. But we cant avoid it because this is continuous celebrate since 1958. Thanks for response I like you strait way.

We can absolutely avoid it. I will. My friends KNOW they matter to me. They don't need a belt to prove it. If they did, they wouldn't be friends.

Hi sis! I don't celebrate that day but I remember once we have such hand band or friendship belt like the one you said just now. I don't celebrate friendship day, mothers day, fathers day teacher day as I can't see any relevant on it. For me we should love those people everyday not in just certain particular days. Don't ask me about our friendship as I take serious any relationship I have. So of course they are all important to me. You too.No doubt!!(^^)

Thank you for such a sweet message in my response box, CT. I just realized that we are not "officially" friends, though, so I have rectified this by sending you a friend request on friendship day, which seems rather appropriate. I hope that you are having a wonderful day friend!

@sis The day just for kids or teenagers I think because at that age they are so excited and eager to celebrate any 'special' occasions. I am still young but don't think it is necessary for me.(^^) @purple Already accept it!!! Same hope to you too!!!(^^)

Hello friend, Friendship day is on July 20th in my country. I agree partially with Spike in the previous box : there should not be a particular day for friendship, all days are good for friends. But a friendship day can also be a good excuse to send some kind messages to our best friends.

dear sis, I want to greet you too "HAPPY FRIENDSHIP DAY MY DEAR SISTER" This is really a good occasion to celebrate with friends. Friends are not actually related to us,not our family,no blood relation but sometimes they treat us more than our family and we feel love more than our family gave us. Yes,some friendship really lasts forever and the bonding is much closer and tighter than of a family ties. enjoy weekend my dear and HAPPY FRIENDSHIP DAY sis, jaiho®

Surekha: Thanks for informing about Friendship day on first sunday. On that day I will interact with mylot friends and other friends who come online. A friend in need is a friend indeed. I have had experience of having friends for longer time and the friendship breaking in fraction of a minute. Yes. friendship is thick and at the same time very weak.

Friendship definitely important to everyone here. I would be happy to celebrate such important day within August. But it is the first time I ever heard of such holiday. So in India, does the college allow students to take a day off from such celebration? Happy friendship day my friend.

Your discussion is sweet and very considerate. Sometime we people need to be reminded that our friends are are allies and not our enimies. We need to remember this through the year, but this just like mothers day and fathers day is a a good reminder of what we HAVE today with our friends. Sometimes we forget this and get too caught up in our troubles and having too much fun.

Hello my sweet friend! This is the first time I have heard there is a specific day of Friendship holiday and or celebration. How cute but we must all remember that friendship is a continual day. Though having a specific day is cute and serves as a reminder just like Mothers day where although Mothers are loved all year round they are specifically honored on one day. So honoring friends on one day is a treat.

I think that in theory it is a nice idea. However, I agree with several other responders that it seems that many of these "special days" are just marketing ideas for businesses to earn more money. They are too commercialized and less ... spontaneous, perhaps. I think that it is more special for someone to bring me a single rose just because they saw it, found it to be beautiful, thought of me and wanted me to have it to show that they cared and were thinking about me than for them to buy something on a particular day because they thought they needed to in order to show that we are friends. Please do not misunderstand me - I am not saying that this day is not special to some and should not be celebrated. I am just saying that it probably would not be the way that I would choose to celebrate my friendship with someone. In these days of fast paced living, tension and stress, though, I can understand why people would want to set aside one day to make sure that they remember to let the people close to them know how special they are.

Happy friendship day. That is a cool thing to celebrate. I don't think it's cool to spend all that money like that though. Like we don't have enough holidays that beg us to empty our wallets on them! Haha. I am on a mission to get all my Christmas presents for free or hugely discounted this year. It is important to learn the value of a simple hug and a kind word. No need to shell out a ton of cash to let someone know you care.
