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 big hug.

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. 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.

National Hug Day, enshrined by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office as the foremost occasion to commemorate that touching and ambiguous gesture. All of which got me thinking about days.Celebrate today by giving hugs to family, friends and loved ones. You'll love the warm feeling you get.“We need four hugs a day for survival. We need eight hugs a day for maintenance. We need twelve hugs a day for growth.”

The importance of hugs and the proper way to hug are included in this article. Great quotes about hugging and a powerful hugging story about one man who wanted to make a difference.
