NATIONAL HUG HOLIDAY DAY
A hug can speak louder than words. A simple hug can change a person’s day, emotions and even their life. While everyone enjoys a hug, National Hug Holiday Day was created to remind people to give an extra special hug to someone who is having a bad day, is sick, lonely, sad or elderly. This simple act will bring love and warmth to a person in need.
National Hug Holiday Day was created by the “Hugs for Health Foundation” for the belief that hugs, friendship and volunteer support are vital components to an overall senior care plan. Although it’s premises was towards the elderly, this holiday has turned into a day to give any needing or willing person a genuine hug.
The Hugs for Health Foundation’s Hugger’s Creed:
“We believe HUGS nurture the human spirit, promote a more positive
outlook and enhance the quality of one’s life”
To celebrate this day to the fullest, venture out and give someone/anyone a warm, sincere and loving hug and enjoy the benefits for yourself, too!
