Jan 21st- Happy National Hugging Day!

Held annually on January 21st, National Hugging Day™ was created to encourage people around the world to show more affection in public through hugging. National Hugging Day was first celebrated January 21, 1986 in Clio, Michigan, USA. There is only one way you are supposed to celebrate the holiday: offer a hug to anyone, especially family and friends.  The creator, Rev. Kevin Zaborney, of this holiday, recognized by the United States Copyright Office and celebrated  internationally,  suggests asking first before hugging!

The “Most Huggable Person of 2017”, awarded by NationalHuggingDay.com is-

“Jürgen Norbert Klopp-Liverpool (UK) Premier League Football Club’s team manager. Sports is a well-known venue for hugging. Former German soccer player himself, Jürgen Klopp is one of many who freely hug others without the worry of being labeled or stigmatized. The classification of what a “Man-Hug” may look like is regularly demonstrated by this passionate sports figure.”

The power of this under-utilized gesture can even be utilized as a sales tool and can benefit you financially.  Start hugging more today and learn more about utilizing this gesture to boost sales from this Wall Street Journal Business Bestseller, available from Amazon-
