What is the World Boyfriends Day?
World Boyfriends Day is a day that’s commemorated on the 3rd of October every year and is an unofficial holiday in which people can spend time with their significant others. It’s considered to be the other half of the significant other holiday, with the other one being Girlfriend Day – a day in which girlfriends are celebrated on the 1st of August every year.
A little History
After doing some little research, hypeghnewsroom.com found no proof of this holiday being created or it being celebrated in any way whatsoever. As such, it may be an Internet myth but since it has been mentioned on several reputable websites, I think it’s safe to say it is one that is going to grow in popularity over time.
We’re making 2020 the year that World Boyfriends Day official becomes a really big “thing!” As far as we can tell, this day is a totally internet-generated phenomenon. The first reference we found is mentioned as Boyfriend Day, probably dated October 4, 2014. But the day seems to gain traction by March 2016 with over 46,000 tweets!
Although there’s no sole officially-credited source that initiated this important day, some smart person probably realized boyfriends didn’t have their own acknowledged day and came up with this great idea. And why not? Girlfriends have their own day!
World Boyfriends Day is increasing in its popularity, not only domestically but around the world. Let’s keep this thing going so that great boyfriends get the love and appreciation they so richly deserve every year.
As World Boyfriends Day was created due to the popularity of World Girlfriend’s Day, then it’s important to point out that National Girlfriend Day was originally created as a way for women to celebrate and hang out with their gal pals. The holiday’s purpose evolved over time and now it is seen as a dual celebration where people celebrate both their romantic girlfriends and also their platonic friendships too.
How can it be celebrated?
Since little is known about this holiday or its origin, it’s really hard to pin down some of the ways people might practice it. However, since it is the logical other half of Girlfriend’s Day, I imagine the best way to celebrate it would be for people to take care of their boyfriends for the day and show them the love and adoration they deserve. Some ideas include making them dinner, giving them a gift or doing something nice for them. I think that’s probably the best way to celebrate this unofficial holiday.
W also suggest that World Boyfriends Day doesn’t have to be all about showing love and affection for your male romantic partner. You can be showing your appreciation for male pals too. So, even if you’re not anyones romantic boyfriend, it doesn’t mean you can’t celebrate Boyfriend Day.
