World embrace day is one of the most enjoyable holidays
Despite the fact that frequent embraces help people understand each other from time immemorial, the day when you can do it just like that, came up quite recently. In the last century, Americans decided to perpetuate this gesture. National Day Embrace Day was founded as early as December 4, 1986. It was on this day there was another celebration of love and goodwill.
A little bit about the history of the Day of Embrace
The history of the celebration is very vague and mysterious. Some sources say that it was not Americans who came up with it. It is believed that it was invented by merry European students. So they decided to celebrate the long-awaited end of the debilitating session. Or is it just an excuse to hug your girlfriend on Honeymoon Day with impunity and without cause?
Another of the many legends says that for the first time the tradition of embracing with strangers appeared in a recognized country of kangaroos. One day a young man flew to one of the Australian airports. But no one there waited for him and did not meet him. Looking at the happy and joyful faces of those around him who were hugging after a long separation, he found a peculiar way out. On the large solid sheet of paper the guy wrote: "Hugs for free." Together with the sign he was right next to the airport. At first the spiritual impulse caused only bewilderment and laughter. But soon the lonely and tired people were drawn to the young man. Sincere embraces helped to feel necessary and loved. Soon such an action was supported in the whole country, and then in the world. So, on January 21, we all celebrate World Embrace Day. And this holiday is becoming more popular.
So, which day is the best time for embraceing? Americans in this regard were a little more fortunate. After all, they officially celebrate both the national and the world holiday of embraces. But why should not the rest of the world follow this contagious and pleasant example? After all, hugs are also considered very useful.
