Friendship Day-August 7th

Friendship Day- is celebrated on Sunday, August 7th.

Friendship Day is an international holiday celebrating friendship.

National Friendship Day occurs every year on the first Sunday of August . After several tough years, friends have proven they have always been there for us.  We appreciate those bonds and connections in our lives. It’s reminds us to gather with both current and old friends.

“There’s nothing better than a friend, unless it’s a friend with chocolate.”

They say, Friendships are the purest type of human relationships. For more than a century, we’ve celebrated the strength of friendship, and thanks to social media, we’re able to continue celebrating with our friends no matter where they are in the world.

National Friendship Day was originally a marketing strategy for Hallmark Cards in the 1930s. Founder Joyce Hall designated the day would take place on August 2 and decided it would be a day to celebrate the people closest to you — and send them a card or two in the process. It soon became a bigger deal than originally planned when the 1935 U.S. Congress pronounced the first Sunday of August as National Friendship Day.

Thanks to advancements in technology, it is easier to get in touch with friends, to share, and to be thankful for them.

So, celebrate with friends and share with the family that you chose — the friends who get you through hard times and cheer you on during your most successful moments.

At McGregor, our residents gather and celebrate the bonds they share while making new friends everyday, cherishing their old friends too!  We believe everyone deserves to live among a community of friends, have places to explore and enjoy occasions to celebrate!  Schedule your visit!
