The National Hugging Day, also known as International Hug Day, or Global Hug Day, is supposed to “encourage people to openly express themselves through hugging”.
Hugging a person, no matter it’s your partner or just a friend, can make you feel warm and fuzzy inside. But aside from making us feel protected and loved, it can also be beneficial to our health.
