17 Instagram Caption Ideas For National Friendship Day That Your BFF Won't Totally Troll You For

If you've been slacking on your friendship duties lately, you're going to want to take the time to make it up to your buddies before Aug. 5, aka National Friendship Day. It's easy to fall out of the social rhythm over the summer — we're all so scattered and divided — but that does't mean you shouldn't be nurturing your friendships in other ways. You're going to want to start collecting some funny National Friendship Day Instagram captions, because one of the best ways to stay close to friends is with social media, duh. If you can't all get together to celebrate the holiday, you can at least shout each other out on Instagram to show your appreciation for your crew and share it with your followers.

Friendship Day is about making extra efforts to show your friends just how important to you they are. It's also a day to celebrate how awesome your squad is and to reach out to people you who'd like to get closer with. You are the company you keep, so the more awesome friends, the more awesome you are. So plan a complimentary (or funny) Instagram post for the holiday, and make sure you pair it with a hilarious quote that gives your friends something to laugh about.
