International Friendship Day
July 30, 2015 in the World

The International Friendship Day is celebrated on July 30, 2015. It is a day for celebrating friendship and takes place annually. Friendship Day was originally created by the greeting card industry. It was promoted by Joyce Hall, the founder of Hallmark cards in 1919, intended to be the first Sunday of August and a day when people celebrated their friendships by sending cards.

Friendship Day celebrations occur on different dates in different countries. The first celebration of this day was proposed for 30 July 1958. On 27 April 2011 the General Assembly of the United Nations declared 30 July as official International Friendship Day. However, some countries celebrate the day on the first Sunday of August. This day once was chosen because of the largest lull between holiday celebrations.

The exchange of Friendship Day gifts like flowers, cards and wrist bands is a popular tradition. The day is enthusiastically celebrated in a number of countries across the world. In 1998, Nane Annan, Secretary-General Kofi Annan, named Winnie the Pooh as world’s Ambassador of Friendship at the United Nations.

Father-in-Law Day
July 30, 2015 in the World

On July 30, 2015 Father-in-Law Day is celebrated. This is a special day to show your appreciation to your father-in-law. A parent-in-law is a person who has a legal affinity with another by being the parent of the other’s spouse. It is assumed that the greeting card industry is the originator of this day like its counterpart the Mother-in-Law Day. Since your father-in-law is the man who has brought up your spouse well and healthy you can show him your appreciation by spending time with him, sending him a greeting card or gathers the whole family and celebrates a party in his honour.

National Chili Dog Day
July 30, 2015 in the USA

It’s been less than a week since National Hot Dog Day, but it’s already time to celebrate National Chili Dog Day! National Chili Dog Day is always observed on the last Thursday of July, which is also National Hot Dog Month. Chili dogs are hot dogs that are usually topped with chili con carne (sans the beans), and other optional ingredients like cheese, onions, or mustard. When the National Sausage and Hot Dog Council ran a pole in 2005, they discovered that chili was the third most popular hot dog condiment, receiving 17% of the votes tallied. The chili dog’s popularity has spawned many variations, like the Coney Dog (actually from MIchigan) with added onions and mustard, and the Texas Hot Dog (actually from Pennsylvania!), which is topped with hot sauce. Chili dogs are particularly popular in the western U.S., with several restaurant chains featuring them on their menus. Arizona is home to the Sonoran dog, a chili dog that’s also topped with bacon and salsa. Mmmm…
