International Friendship Day, also known as World Friendship Day, is celebrated annually on July 30th.
The day promotes the importance of friendship and reinforces the idea that friendship knows no boundaries or barriers. It is a time to celebrate the bonds we share with friends and to appreciate their presence in our lives.
This is actually fundamental to the ideas that drive StolenTime and its sister resort The BodyHoliday. Inspiring camaraderie, is what we try to do, and its no accident that many lasting friendships are made at both resorts.
The idea of International Friendship Day was first proposed by the World Friendship Crusade, an organization founded in 1958. The United Nations officially recognized and declared the day in 2011 with the aim of fostering peace and harmony among individuals, communities, and nations.
On this day, people often express their love and gratitude towards their friends by exchanging gifts, spending quality time together, or simply reaching out to reconnect. It serves as a reminder to cherish and nurture our friendships, as they play a significant role in our happiness and well-being.

So, take this opportunity to appreciate and celebrate your friendships, and spread the message of love, kindness, and solidarity that International Friendship Day represents.
