Today is Make a Friend Day and what better way to make a friend then to share a story about best friends who can wear the same pants. The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants books were written by Ann Brashares and the adaptions of the books to big screen were released in 2005 and 2008 respectively for both films.

I first came across this story from the movies and I instantly liked them. There are kind of a guilty pleasure of mine, they’re fun, sweet and perfect for a lazy day in. The idea is cool as well, how a single pair of jeans can fit four friends and helps keep them together as they grow and change. But the one constant is the jeans; it reminds Tibby, Lena, Carmen, and Bridget that their friendship is worth fighting for. That no matter where they end up, be it Greece, digging up lost civilizations, college, they’ll always be connected.
So go out there and make a new friend. It can be very awkward at first but share your thoughts, goals, pants-maybe not pants yet but you’ll get there. Whether at work or a club, a gym, a bookstore, The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants is sure to be a conversation starter.
