Forget Me Not Day is an unofficial holiday that encourages people to try and reconnect with all those they may not be in touch with anymore.

It is not clear who created this holiday, which is also called National Forget Me Not Day in the U.S.

Alzheimer's Association

In New Zealand, a similar holiday called Forget Me Not Days has been observed on June 5 and 6 every year since 2003. Started by two bank insurances as a way to fun raise for the Alzheimer's Association.

How to Celebrate?

  • Try and contact your long lost friends on social media websites and get talking with them.
  • Send them a note saying that even though you haven’t been in touch you still miss them and care about them.
  • Send forget me not flowers to your loved ones as a way to tell them how much they mean to you.
