For some, this one day can simply be a day to say thank you to your friends and to celebrate what you have together with them.
You can celebrate friendship day in many different ways. Most of the time, it is celebrated with cards, flowers, or candy between friends. However, as you get older, it might be good to make those long distance phone calls to friends that you have lost touch with and send care packages to friends who are far away.
You might even go out with your friends to do something special, like a movie or dinner out, or even an afternoon at the beach or the park. Many people observe this special day by getting together at one person's house and watching movies, or cooking a fun meal together.
If you are a bit younger, you can still do the movie thing or you can have a theme party such as a luau, murder mystery party or just a dance party. Another great way might be getting together to make something that will always remind you of your friends. Think about inviting your friends over and having a party then making friendship bracelets, scrapbook pages, or even having your own photo shoot that you can then print and frame together. Many friends like decorating things like t-shirts, tennis shoes or photo frames. Get creative! A friendship day party is a festive way to embrace the day.
When it comes right down to it, Friendship Day is a day to appreciate the best friends you have and all that they represent to you. So, no matter what you usually do with your friends, those things can be a great way to celebrate them. Just get together, be together, and have fun. If you can't be together, then send each other well wishes, or talk on the phone. Having friends in your life is an amazing thing, so be sure to make the most of it!
