Share a laugh outdoors with your best friends.

The friends we have chosen are cherished and celebrated on National Best Friends Day, June 8.

Even if you don’t consider any of your friends your “best friend,” you can still celebrate the day with all of your friends. Make a plan to spend some quality time with your best friend (or friends). Go on a walk, plan a virtual movie watch-party, or grab a bite to eat after the last day at school. Whatever you decide to do, just make sure to thank them for all the great memories you share.

Do you wonder who came up with this idea? Well, we have our own country to thank according to National Today. In 1935, the U.S. Congress gathered to devote a day each year in tribute to close friends. They chose June 8, which is usually a balmy day in all regions of the country—perfect for outdoor activities. Since then, many other countries have adopted the practice. Some even throw festivals to celebrate their chosen family.

Why not honor your best friends here in The Armijo Signal? Give them a shout out, and maybe a Thank You, in the comments section.
