However, with the spread of the internet today, people no longer make handmade cards for their peers, but they either send an ecard or text and chat or ring up their friends across social media. Since then, Winnie the Pooh, the world’s ambassador of Friendship at the United Nations inaugurated the celebration of friendship day.
