Día del Amigo, or Friend’s Day, is celebrated in Argentina, Brazil and Uruguay in acknowledgement of the wonderful thing that is friendship.
Though not actually a public holiday, the event is pretty huge in these countries - you'll probably need to book ahead if you want a table in a restaurant, and the mobile network has been known to collapse under the weight of all the well-wishing.
If you have a friend you haven't seen for a while, tonight is the night to get things moving and invite them over for a Tres Amigos Daiquiri.
