There may be way too many random, fictional holidays on the calendar these days (I’m looking at you, Single Working Women’s Day), but if there’s one special day we can get behind, it’s National Friendship Day. Celebrated on the first Sunday in August—that’s August 5th this year—National Friendship Day celebrates the love between besties, and we can’t really think of anything better than that.
