Celebrating National Hug Day

Free Hug
Since 1986 January 21 has been celebrated as National Hug Day in the U.S. However, it is not a public holiday. January 21 was chosen because it marks a midpoint between Christmas and Valentines day, when you might think people are at their emotional low. 

What better way to lift spirits than with hugs? 
I have learned that there is more power in a good strong hug than in a thousand meaningful words. ~Ann Hood

Not only do hugs lift your spirits, but research shows that hugs have other benefits!

Who will you hug today?
