We celebrate Friend’s Day with a very special offer!
What is friendship?
Personal affection is known by friendship, pure and selfless, shared with another person, that is born and strengthened by treatment. Friendship carries associated values such as love, loyalty, commitment and sincerity.
Friendships can arise in many different contexts. This way we can have our lifelong friends, those from the neighborhood, from the university, from work…
And there are also different degrees of empathy. So we have friends with whom we have a more distant relationship and others, whom we usually call best friends, with whom we feel much more attached. We usually spend a lot more time with these friends because we really care about them. We want to be always present in their lives, to have a place of relevance, and for this to be reciprocal.
July 20th, a very special day….
In several countries, Friend’s Day is celebrated on July 20th. A day when you usually think about gifts, write letters, get together for dinner… The most important thing is to have all the members of the group of friends present. That day is also the perfect excuse to regain the bond with those with whom contact has been lost.
This popular date is an Argentine invention that found inspiration in a very special way. The date was chosen on the basis of the day man first reached the Moon, as it represents the efforts of the common human being to cross borders beyond the visible horizon. It is a very accurate allegory of the efforts made by great friends to ensure that their affective relationship lasts, sometimes even when they are separated by miles of distance.
July 20th is a ritual for Argentines, Brazilians and Uruguayans. However, the other countries of the world celebrate it on other dates. For example, the global date for International Day of Friendship is July 30th, set by the United Nations General Assembly in 2011. According to the UN, this day seeks friendship among peoples, countries and cultures, to present an opportunity to build bridges and inspire peace initiatives.
The importance of having a best friend
The importance of having a best friend is such that many experts consider it to be one of the most rewarding experiences that human beings have throughout their lives.
In addition, according to several scientific studies, there is a link between good health and strong friendship ties. They say friendship is a health benefit comparable to the one you get from quitting smoking.
However, it is also recognized that it is not easy to maintain a friendship. As we have said, maintaining friendship and making it last over time is one of the most difficult tasks, and it takes dedication for the relationship to be strong. Too often, in adulthood, because of work and family commitments, it is especially difficult to find space to share with friends.
Thankfully, there are now many methods that technology makes available to us to keep us together and connected, even if we do not have the opportunity to see each other physically. For example, at Moneytrans we’ve added mobile top-up to our range of services, so you can stay in touch with your friends and family.
