National Hugging Day
Date When Celebrated : This holiday is always held on January 21
What a great day! This is an opportunity to give and to receive. Give a hug, and you automatically receive one in return. Sure, someone might not hug back. But, how often does that happen!?!
Hugs are loving. Hugs are therapeutic. Hugs are caring. Hugs are celebratory. Hugs make you feel good inside. A hug is a way to say everything is, or will be okay. Have you ever received a hug from someone who didn't care? I didn't think so. That's proof positive that you're loved and cared about.
Celebrate today by giving hugs to family, friends and loved ones. You'll love the warm feeling you get.
Quote for the Day: " There's a long life ahead of you and it's going to be beautiful, as long as you keep loving and hugging each other." - - Yoko Ono
History and Origin of National Hugging Day:
National Hugging Day was created in 1986 by Rev. Kevin Zaborney from Caro, Michigan. Strangely, this day is copyrighted. One would think that hugs should be given freely and without recourse. Regardless, we are thankful to the Reverend Zaborney for creating this day and would love to thank him with a great, big hug.
We found no reference to this day as a "National" day, which requires a presidential proclamation or an act of congress.
