When I was a kid, I never knew why they give these bracelets made of thread. The experience was new to me when I was given a bracelet by one of my friends during the month of august. They say that august is the month of friendship. The month of august marks the friendship day and this is when the need for friendship bracelets arises. They belief with these friendship bracelets is that the own who gives these bracelets to their friends shows their profound gratitude and years of companionship. These bracelets bind them in the knots of friendship.
These friendship bracelets make a good gift not only amongst kids but also within adults. This is not only because of the artistic beauty of these bracelets but also each one of the design makes it unique in its history. People also tie these bracelets on someone who make a wish for something and the bracelet is to be worn until the wish comes true. Some people believe that the bracelet must be worn until it wears off in the wearer’s wrist.
Friendship bracelets are of a few different types. The handmade knotted ones are the most famous. This is because the knots make a pattern which looks very attractive. The other type is the metal bracelet. These are common amongst boys as they think the knotted ones look feminine. Another category is the charm bracelet. These bracelets are quite famous today and mark the beginning of a special occasion.
