June 8 is Best Friends Day, a day to celebrate your best friend and let them know how important they are to you.

Best friends are the best! They are the friends you can call up at any time of the day, laugh with for no reason at all, and confide in. They are there for you in all your good and bad times, they support you, validate all your good decisions and stop you from making wrong ones. In other words, without best friends, life would be very bleak indeed.

How to Celebrate?

Whether you grew up with them or met them later in your life, let your best friend know that you cherish them on Best Friends Day. Here are some ways you can celebrate this friendly holiday:

  • Thank your best friends for being in your life by doing something special for them. Maybe send them a special gift basket full of things they like or treat them to their favorite dessert.
  • Spend time with your best friend and do things that both of you enjoy doing together.
  • Don't live in the same city as your best friend? Call them or send them a note letting them know how much you miss them. Better yet, why not try to make a surprise visit? They'll love to see you, and you can spend the day with your favorite person in the world!
