National Hug Holiday. I did a blog similar to this a while back...but can you ever get tired of hugs?
Some people never hug...don't like that "close" contact. Others, like me, grew up in a family environment where we hugged all the time...relatives and friends alike.
1. The hello, friendly hug.
A greeting besides just saying "Hello".
Watch sports. Don't teammates sometimes hug each other after a particular good play or win?
The quick call hug. You're at a party/event/whatever. Someone you know enters and you watch as everyone greets this person with a hug. What do you do? You join in and follow the crowd so you don't appear to be "different".
Yeah, I got used to this very quickly as a child. If someone was family, you hugged. No brainer there. Big Italian families are "touchy/feely" people.
5. The comforting hug.
These are for times of sadness and a show of commiserating (I'm here, I understand" support.
6. The love hug.
Totally different that the others mentioned above. This one involves romance, love, passion, lust...you name it.
Go hug someone today...preferably someone like the guys above!
