Scroll through your Facebook or Instagram and get ready to unfollow because tomorrow is National Unfriend Day.
The national holiday was created by Jimmy Kimmel in 2010, who announced the day on his nightly talk show, Jimmy Kimmel Live.
“Friendship is a sacred thing, and I believe Facebook is cheapening it,” he said on his show. “I go on Facebook; I see people with thousands of what they call friends, which is impossible. You can’t have a thousand friends.”
He went on to explain that most Facebook friends are unnecessary and encouraged the public to “cut out some of the friend fat in your life.”

Although it’s been ten years since its inception, the holiday has not been forgotten.
I’d like to wish everyone a Happy and Safe National Unfriend Day Eve #NationalUnfriendDayEve

Apparently November 17th is National Unfriend Day. Well, I already got rid of my friends, so I guess it will be Cut Family Ties Day for me. 😂
