Friendship Holidays

Friendship holidays allow us a moment to go ahead and celebrate the family that we choose. From new friends celebrated on National Make a Friend Day on February 11 to our number ones celebrated on National Best Friends Day on June 8, our friends get us through the worst of times and elevate the best of times. With 39 friendship holidays to celebrate throughout the year, there’s no shortage of love to go around.
