When is National First Love Day
National First Love Day is celebrated every year on September 18th.
History of National First Love Day
It was declared a national holiday for the first time in 2015, and since then, it has been observed by people all around the US on September 18th. However, no one knows when or why this day came into being.
The only thing we know for sure is that someone must have been recalling their first love relationship to do it. The bittersweet sorrow of memories sparked this day.
Valentine’s Day and National Love Day were already popular celebrations of Love prior to the holiday’s inception in the United States.
Both of these occasions commemorate a key day in the lives of their current romantic partners or other people they cherish. The National First Love Day is more of a stroll down a specific memory lane.
