Since its inception in 1935, in US the beautiful idea of having a day in the honor of friends was joyously taken by one and all. The lofty idea of honoring the beautiful relationship of friendship caught on with the people, particularly the youngsters all over, and in no time Friendship Day became a highly popular festival .
Started with handing over roses, especially the pink and yellow ones have now reached a long way to throwing parties, gorging on lip-smacking dishes and drinking hard. A highly popular thing associated with the day is the well-known Friendship Band – the modern day token of friendship that friends gift to one another to form an everlasting bond.
In Jaipur, greater hype and hoopla around the occasion has helped to generate awareness about Friendship Day festival that was till recently a low-key affair.
Restaurateurs are not only offering special discounts but have also done intensive planning to organise a special evening just for F.R.I.E.N.D.S. and couples as well. 😉
The one such place is The Fern Hotel Jaipur,which is celebrating the spirit of friendship by throwing a day & night party at its Grunge Lounge,
