Why you need to celebrate Hug Day
A hug is a simplest and warmest form of expressing love without saying a thousand words. Couples are generally expected to share at least one hug on this day and show their partner how much you they love and care for each other. And as science too says, hugs can make one instantly happy.
Embrace your partner and reassure them that you will always be there for them when they need them. It not only boosts the self-esteem of the partner, but also teaches the art of sharing and giving in relationships.
