Call a Friend Day


Friends and family are seen throughout the holiday season, but some live far across the country and are not able to be visited. Today is dedicated to calling a friend that lives far away that won't be seen during the holidays. With the rise of social media, email, and texting, conversations with friends by phone happen less and less. Today is a day for talking over the phone and making a connection with the human voice.

Call a Friend Day is observed next on Saturday, December 28th, 2019. It has always been observed annually on December 28th.

How to Observe

Make a phone call to one or more friends that you won't be seeing over the holidays. Call them up just to say "hello," or spend the whole day on the phone having long conversations about the past year and hopes for the future.
