Flatmates Day is celebrated on March 24th of every year by the flatmates all over the world. A flatmate is a person with whom one shares a rental living facility such as an apartment or dormitory. Flatmates usually share kitchen and corridor; and will have room for their own. Flatmates are called differently at different places such as dormmate, suitemate, housemate, share mate and roommate. The term flat is usually used in British English for an apartment, and in New Zealand, flatmate is solely used, regardless of whether the dwelling is an apartment or a detached house. Sharing flats are common and widespread in America, United Kingdom, parts of Europe, and in India. This concept is adopted mainly to reduce the cost of housing. This day is celebrated to thank your excellent flatmates who have been with you through your ups and downs and from helping you in all petty things to being a family.
“I have the best roommates in the world! It creates a fun sense of family…and that’s really important to me. Things can get so lonely without it.” – Kristen Bell
