Even for those children who may not be living in their family of choice or birth, we hope that they can find something positive and celebratory in Family Day.

Origin and History of Friendship Day Celebrations

Friendship History

Though it is not known exactly what were the reasons that went into the making of this day, the retrospection of the world scenario of those times can lead us to an understanding. With the devastating effects of the First World War still showing and increasing hostilities, mistrust and hatred between countries providing the perfect conditions for another imminent battle, there was a greater need for friendship and camaraderie not only among nations but also among individuals.
