About National Hugging Day
National Hug Day or National Hugging Day is an annual holiday created by Rev. Kevin Zaborney. It occurs on January 21st and is officially recognized by the United States Copyright Office, but is not a public holiday. The holiday was founded on March 29th 1986 in Caro, Michigan, and has since spread to multiple countries.
Because hugging is something everyone can do and because it is a healthful form of touching, this day should be spent hugging anyone who will accept a hug, especially family and friends.
