Somehow, some way I came across that it was friendship day! Who knew? I send a text message with *hugs* to all my friends.
"Friends are the most important ingredient
in this recipe of life."

Celebrate Friendship Day!

Human beings are social creatures and have always valued the importance of friends in their lives. To celebrate this noble feeling it was deemed fit to have a day dedicated to friends and friendship. Accordingly, first Sunday of August was declared as a holiday in US in honor of friends by a Proclamation made by US Congress in 1935. Since then, World Friendship Day is being celebrated every year on the first Sunday in the month of August.

This beautiful idea of celebrating Friendship Day was joyfully accepted by several other countries across the world. And today, many countries including India, celebrate the first Sunday of August as Friendship Day every year. Celebrating Friendship Day in a traditional manner, people meet their friends and exchange cards and flowers to honor their friends. Lot many social and cultural organization too celebrate the occasion and mark Friendship Day by hosting programs and get together.

It may be noted that some associations celebrate Friendship Day in an entirely different time of the year and with different customs. For instance,

  • National Friendship Day is on the first Sunday in August.
  • Women's Friendship Day is on the third Sunday in August
  • International Friendship Month is February
  • Old Friends, New Friends Week is the third week of May

My mom always used to say, "To make a friend you must be a friend." It's true!

Check out this serious puppy tongue-age!

Have you ever seen a puppy lick the tip of her nose?
Now you have!

She loves that little tiger.

I spent a good part of this morning cleaning and organizing the closet. It was such a mess I could hardly walk in... let alone find clothes I was looking for. Well overdue for a summer cleaning!

Closet before...

Closet after...

I feel so much better when things are organized.

This afternoon I went to Tampa Theatre to see the Creature from the Black Lagoon 3-D in black and white. I met my friend Alyssa, her mom and sister and friends. It literally only takes 15 minutes for me to get downtown. There was a line wrapped around the side of the building! They sold out the show.

We set at the very, very top of the theater in the nose-bleed section. It was quite the experience! From any seat in the theater you will have a great view of the screen, except the bottom level in the back (that's for real shows). There was a man playing the organ - very well I might add - before and after the movie.

He literally sunk into the stage when finished. The movie was awesome. I haven't seen old school black and white 3-D movies before. Or if I have I don't remember them. It was a lot of fun and great to see Alyssa again.
