HAPPY DIA DEL AMIGO
Día del Amigo is this Saturday - time to celebrate our friends and friend families. What's International Friends Day? A day when we gather with friends, exchange gifts, and share a meal and some toasts to celebrate our friendship. Sure, it is celebrated in other countries (usually on a different day), but it's a real big deal in Argentina where bars and restaurants are filled to the rafters with friend parties. According to urban legend, one year the amount of well-wishing friends broke the mobile phone network in Buenos Aires.
Friends Day founder and friend advocate, Dr. Enrique Ernesto Febbraro, chose July 20th because it is the day Neil Armstrong landed on the moon - and made a grand gesture of friendship between humanity and the universe. And it's the 50th anniversary of that there landing - one more reason to celebrate with moon-shaped alfajores!
