National Hug Day was created by Reverend Kevin Zaborney in Caro, Michigan in 1986 as an antidote to the reverend’s perception that many American were afraid to display affection in public. He created the date on which this holiday is celebrated, January 21st because he felt this was a time of the year when the spirit of people were at the lowest due to it falling between Christmas and Valentine’s Day.

If you can, hug at least one person today. If not, do so by proxy with the DIY hug of putting your arms around yourself, rubbing them up and down and rocking from side to side.
Happy Hug Day and keep safe everyone.
