Note: It does not need to be Friendship Day to thank you friends for being there for you. Friendship is a bond that should be cherished and celebrated every day.

So stop waiting for that one day in the year, and give your dear friends a hug as you show them how thankful you are to have people like them in your life.

Just like saying 'I love you' to your partner, saying 'thank you' to your friend is one of the very few things in life that will never go out of vogue.
