Remember when you were a child and you couldn’t fins anything better to play so you decided you would chase your friends around and try to touch them, or they touch you? Guess today that may be outta place. Still, kids do it. The fastest always win, the slowest and heaviest generally lose but you sort of know that going into it. Even if you are a good dodger you are eventually gonna get tagged if you aren’t fast enough. There use to be something about being called “it” that was upsetting. Of course today we are supposed to call each other “it”. So I guess even as we get older we still are playing tag, just with new rules.
How to celebrate – Get a neighborhood game of tag going. Be proud to be “it”. Watch where you put those hands!!!
Today is National Hug Holiday Day. It was created by Hugs For Health Foundation. All sorts or creatures need hugs, just make sure they want it before you give them one. And it may be a little odd to ask them but trust me, it will be better for everyone concerned if you ask first.
That G.I. coming home after a deployment will probably want one, probably it would be better coming from his family or his friends.. and I would not go running up to a soldier to give them a hug if they don’t know you.
I am glad bears don’t have the same restrictions we humans do. They will hug practically anything or anyone. Of course you might end up in many tiny pieces if you try to hug one. But isn’t it funny that even one of the most unpredictable animals in the world likes hugs too!
And then there’s your best friend. If they know you they will normally accept a hug even though they probably don’t really want it. It’s kinda hard for them to hug you back. I’m not sure they understand why you are giving them a hug but I don’t think they really care… they just enjoy being around you.
So try using this coupon. See if you give it to someone and they respond by giving you a hug. My guess is they won’t… but woudn’t the world be a better place if we could actually hug each other without being concerned about it.
How to celebrate – Look for someone who needs a hug. Hug your loved ones. Be safe and just hug your pillow, it will not reject you.
