Most of you have probably heard of the holiday
before and even if you haven’t I am sure you are not having a hard time
guessing how it’s celebrated.
National Hug Day occurs on January 21st and this
day is dedicated for helping people showing their emotions in public. The
holiday was originated in the late 70s but more specific details of its
appearance are unknown.
The majority of people have no problem with
expressing their love to their close friends and family and I am sure you hug
your beloved ones pretty often. But on the National Hug Day you can offer a hug
to anyone and everyone you want, including passing sad looking strangers.
Unlike some similar holidays, National Hug Day doesn’t encourage to embrace
everyone in your hugs, but asking first. It implies that you are offering a
hug, not giving it to anyone despite the will of the other person.
To some it might be a little weird why and how
did this holiday become recognized throughout the world. Why hugs? Well, for
the most of it the reason hugs are appreciated by the different nationalities
equally is the meaning it has for every person. Hug has a universal meaning of
support, concern or just the way of saying “I am here”. There are lots of
different hug types, which can show various feelings like affection, support,
tenderness, love and care. So sometimes it might be inappropriate to give such
an intimate hug to a stranger, that is why one type of hug is considered as the
one everybody can enjoy – heart centered hug. Such a well-needed heart hug can
lift anyone’s spirit and is a perfect way to express friendly emotions and to
show that you care.
Sometimes it happens that the person we want to
hug the most is not with us on this day. There is always a way to express your
affection, love and care even to those who are not right by your side at the
moment by sending a lovely gift to your beloved ones. If you have close people
living in Ukraine we in UkraineGiftDeliver will
be pleased to deliver your gifts for people you would love to hug. If you want
to send gifts to Ukraine or flowers to Ukraine be
sure your loved person will receive that gentle hug you have for them.
