National Girlfriends Day is an annual holiday commemorated every year on August 1st. While its origins are “unknown,” we need no convincing to embrace a day that celebrates the friendships between women. It’s a day that reminds us to cherish all the women we know – girlfriends, mothers, daughters, sisters, aunts, etc. – who make our lives better.

So take a moment to tell your girlfriends how much they mean to you today.
