Celebrating the supportive friends, the sidekicks, the true heroes of the stories and of course, on the day before Valentines Day, the one who acts as your wingman to meet the love of your life.
We all have one. The friend who encourages, supports, and sticks with us through thick and thin. Wingman’s Day is about showing some appreciation to the buddy who’s on your left. And no better time to return the favor than right before Valentine’s Day!
Our research couldn’t parse out the creator of Wingman’s Day. For all we know, it was a wingman who did it, looking to put some respect on their title! But considering the nature of a wingman, I doubt it. The wingman is all about helping out, not taking up the attention. The wingman props you up, not tear you down. The wingman zigs so you can zag. The wingman cares. And so should you! National Wingman’s Day is about giving that loyal supporting player the lead role. No more do they work in the shadows! Not today! Spend this February 13th basking in the glory of your favorite bosom buddy.
