National Hug Holiday

One simple action a hug can speak louder than words. It can change a person's day, emotions and life. The simple act is a hug. Today you may want to give someone an extra special hug to someone having a bad day. National Hugs Holiday was created to do just that . To the person in need of help, sick, sad or elderly a hug may mean everything.

Hugs for Health Foundation created the National Hug Holiday Day. The day was created to offer special care hugs to the elderly. It has turned into a day that anyone that needs a hug can get one.

The Huggers Creed is:\
“We believe HUGS nurture the human spirit, promote a more positive outlook and enhance the quality of one’s life”
Do you ever just need a hug?? Someone to acknowledge that you are having a moment?? The best way this can be done is by offering someone a hug. There are those individuals that have a bubble of sorts up and do not like their personal space invaded. You may want to ask permission before giving someone a hug.
