Happy Friendship Day 2016!

Moroccan writer Tahar Ben Jelloun has once said: "real friendship, like real poetry, is extremely rare - and precious as a pearl." Finding a true friend might be a tough task for some, but to have a reliable friend, one has to be so with others as well. 

In order to show the importance of friends in life, Friendship Day is observed on the first Sunday of August every year (Aug. 7 this year) and with it people across the globe are waiting to spend the special day with their best buddies who have become inevitable parts of their lives. The day is observed by sharing gifts and friendship bands between friends to show how important they are in life.

Check out some special friendship day messages, wishes and greetings that we have collected for the readers that can be shared with best friends.
