An Ode To Friday

An Ode To Friday

Everyone loves Fridays, but I don't mean the restaurant.

It's the day of the week we all dream about. A beautiful word and a beautiful end to a tough work week or school week. You may have guessed it by now but if not, I'm talking about Friday. After a long four days of work or school, we're all ready for the weekend. Friday is a nice, warm greeting to the start of two days off from responsibilities. Here are some celebratory GIFs to celebrate our favorite day of the week:
