According to Nathanael Richmond, “Best Friends can turn a horrible day, into one of the best days of your life.” The day reminds one to spare a day for his / her best friend. Unlike the usual friends, a best friend always stands beside whenever there is a need of him or her. An unknown author says, “Friends listen to what you say. Best friends listen to what you don’t say.” It is rather appreciable to make the best friends realize that they are more important than any other friend.
There is no clue on the origin of the day but it is least bothered due to the importance of the day. Everyone wish to spend the days with friends and best friends. Yet, sparing a day particularly for a person makes the person acknowledge the value he or she was given. Thus, everyone is less bothered the initiator of the day and applaud them in heart for giving a day to do something for the best friend.
The celebrations of the day vary from person to person. Few celebrate with pomp and few in peace. However, celebrating the day is more important than the way of celebration. The activities of the day must be in remembrance till the next year.
Mother, Father, Sister, Brother, Wife, Lover- all the relations are appreciated and are given a special day to make the relations special. Best Friend is also treated as one of the important relations of the life. When someone always cares without any relation, corrects the wrong decisions, encourages at the defeat and feels happy at the success, that someone grasps a special place in the heart. And the place is named Best Friend. It is beyond the religion, race, language and age. The best friend may not be a human itself, but may be a dog or any other pet.
Everyone may not be blessed with a best friend and thus, those who do have best friend must celebrate the day.
One can celebrate the day with few of the following activities:
