National Girlfriend Day

Celebrated on the 1st of August, National Girlfriends Day is a holiday on which guys take the time to show their girlfriends how important they are to them and is also a holiday celebrated by women to commemorate their female friends. While it’s not an “official” holiday – and as such government building and businesses aren’t closed – it is one that is being celebrated by an increasing number of people all over the United States.

History

No one really knows who started this holiday. It was probably started by a greeting card company in order to sell more cards. However, that doesn’t mean that it isn’t a day taken seriously by people. In fact, the popularity of this holiday seems to increase each and every year.

Customs, Traditions And Celebrations

Men and women can celebrate this holiday in different ways. Men can treat it in much the same way as they treat Valentine’s Day and take their significant others out to dinner or buy them a gift. Perhaps a nice piece of jewelry or some flowers. Women can hang out with their girlfriends and use the day to spend quality time together or shop. It doesn’t matter how you celebrate the day, only that you show the woman friend in your life how important they are to you.
