National Girlfriends Day or #NationalGirlfriendsDay on August 1, 2018, is a social media holiday encouraging people to appreciate their girlfriends online and off. There is some debate online regarding who the day is actually supposed to be about – romantic girlfriends, platonic girlfriends, girlfriends who have girlfriends, or girlfriends who have boyfriends. However, all types of girlfriends are (rightfully) being celebrated on this day.

And yes, it’s Wednesday, so it’s also #WCW!
