I´ve got 5.

I know it´s a bit out of topic but I have a doubt. In Argentina, Friendship Day is July 20th. ¿Why is it celebrated on August 5 in EEUU and how do you celebrate?

 

On July 20, 1969, Dr. Enrique Ernesto Febbraro, a psychology, philosophy, history professor, musician and dentist, was watching on TV the landing of the Apollo 11 on the moon, he promised himself that this would be Friendship Day.

Before the Apollo 11 returned to Earth, he sent a thousand letters to one hundred countries, and he recieved 700 responses.

Argentina is a country where the cult of friendship is revered. The phone lines collapse on July 20th every year, restaurants and bars are at full capacity, and this day it´s a celebration as importatant as Christmas or New Year Eve.

I don't know why or how these things came to be. I'm sure whoever made up the list of words just followed a googled calendar that had Friendship Day listed in August. It's interesting to read about Dr. Febbraro and the Apollo landing. I didn't know that!
