National Hugging Day

January 21st

National Hugging Day is an annual event that takes place on January 21st. The holiday was created in 1986 by Kevin Zaborney, a resident of Caro, Michigan, as a way to promote love and affection. The goal of National Hugging Day is to encourage people to give and receive hugs, as it is believed that the physical act of hugging can have a positive impact on one's mental and emotional well-being. It is a day to remind people to express their feelings, and to connect with others in a meaningful way. Many people celebrate by giving hugs to friends, family, and even strangers, in an effort to spread love and positivity.
