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. Maybe your co-worker needs a hug today. Go ahead and give them one. You might just change someones life.
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. But then again to we really need congress to tell us it is OK to give someone a Hug. Perhaps you should hug your Congress person today as well.
Well perhaps you don’e like to really hug people and that is OK but you can still get in on the fun……………..perhaps you can just pass out HUGS instead
