In 1935, Congress enacted National Friendship Day (scheduled for the first Sunday in August) to celebrate one of life’s most important relationships. Although the holiday never became a major observance in the United States, it is celebrated in many nations around the world – and it does give us a great opportunity to shower our best friends with gratitude and affection. On the same date – August 6 – National Sisters Day is also on the calendar. Given that our best friends and our sisters are often one and the same, this seems entirely appropriate! Did You Know? Yellow roses are the official flower of friendship and encouragement. Our Lemon Sorbet arrangement features beautiful yellow roses and white lilies – and is a great design to send to your very best friend.
Growing up with strong sister bonds results in many positive personality traits. Experts say that people with sisters are generally happier people, who are more content and optimistic. It is also interesting to note that people with sisters are more generous overall. Similarly, people who have close friends are better at navigating complex relationships, sharing with others, and identifying and going after goals. Truly, it is clear that having someone in your life who has your back, and has been with you through thick and thin, helps us to live more fulfilling lives.
So whether she is a sister by birth, or a friend who is just like family, August 6 is an amazing opportunity to celebrate your very special relationship.
