About Hug Day

There is a famous quote,"Hugging is a silent way of saying ‘you matter to me" We all like a nice and warm hug from our loved ones that make us feel loved, cared, and safe in their protective arms. Hugging is also considered the best way to express your innermost feelings for your beloved and show how much he/she matters to you. Hug Day is the sixth important day of Valentine’s week celebrated every year on 12th February. On this day, generally, lovers hug each other as an expression of love and affection. But over the time, this day had evolved a lot and now it is also celebrated by friends and members of the family. People also hug their friends on this day and show that they will be always there to love, support and guide them in every step. People in a family hug each other to express their love through the gesture of hugging.

A warm and gentle hug not only brings you physically close to someone but also help develop a deep emotional connection with that person. There are different types of hugs that convey different feelings and emotions.

A warm bear hug is the purest expression of love often exchanged between lovers and friends who meet after a long time. A buddy hug is shared by two close friends where they wrap their arms around each other and give a light pat on the back. A quick hug is the one that occurs when you are in a hurry but don’t want to miss the chance to convey your love and greetings for a special person. The snuggle hug is a romantic kind of hug shared by lovers where they snug into each other’s arms and get super comfy. In a sleepy shoulder hug, both partners wrap into each other’s arms and the girl slightly rests her head on man’s shoulder. It shows that the girl feels safe and secure in the arms of her man. The hug from behind is an act of protection where a man comes and hugs his woman from behind while pulling her closer and making her feel wanted.
