Kevin Zaborney noticed people were in low spirits between Christmas, New Year and Valentine's Day. His solution? Hug it out with a National Hugging Day as hugs reduce stress with the show of support and produce oxytocin, a brain chemical associated with happiness. First celebrated in 1986, it's traditionally celebrated in person with hugs but as tech has developed it has become part of the day with virtual hugs. A factor that's become particularly useful with the pandemic and social distancing. But National Hugging Day is not just limited to traditional hugs, some people aren't comfortable with hugs and they're included in a way that makes them comfortable. There are ways to virtually or metaphorically embrace using words or deeds. We're embracing you by sharing our Hand Made Charms and Opal Beads reaching out for a hug.
