National Boyfriend Day is a day that is commemorated on October 3rd every year and is an unofficial holiday in which women can spend the day showing their boyfriends the love and appreciation they desire. It is one half of the set of significant other holidays-the other one being Girlfriends Day-a day in which girlfriends are celebrated on August 1st.
After doing extensive research, I can find no proof of this holiday being created or it being celebrated in any way whatsoever. As such, it may be an Internet myth but since it has been mentioned on several reputable websites, I think it’s safe to say it is one that is going to grow in popularity over time.
Customs, Traditions and Celebrations
Since little is known about this holiday or its origin, it’s really hard to pin down ways people might practice it. However, since it is the other half of Girlfriend’s Day, I imagine the best way to celebrate it would be for women to take care of their boyfriends for the day and show them the love and adoration they deserve. Maybe make them dinner, give them a gift or do something nice for them. I think that’s the best way to celebrate this unofficial holiday.
