Not sure who comes up with these things, but January 21st is National Hug Day according to Wikipedia. It’s “officially recognized by the United States Patent and Trademark Office” and “was founded on January 21, 1986 in Caro, Michigan, and has since spread to Canada, England, Australia, Germany and Poland.” Who knew??

Read on…

Who is on your list of top people to hug? I’d celebrate National Hug Day by hugging:

1. Ryan Reynolds — He’s newly single (ish), I hate you Sandra Bullock! Have you seen the man without a shirt?

2. True Blood‘s Joe Manganiello who plays Alcide on the show. Words cannot begin to describe…Here’s a pic just in case.

3. Sully from Monsters Inc. because he’s cute. ;-)

There’s a website here all about today, but if National Hugging Day isn’t your thing, this site has all the “national days” listed in chronological order and weird doesn’t even begin to describe some of the days on there. Are they even real? Not that it matters because they sure are interesting. Here are some of the strangest:

February 3 is … Cordova Ice Worm Day — ????
March 4 is … Holy Experiment Day — what does that even mean?
March 5 is … Multiple Personalities Day — not cool.
March 18 is … Supreme Sacrifice Day — don’t even want to know.
April 13 is … Blame Somebody Else Day — hahaha.
May 30 is … My Bucket’s Got A Hole In It Day — who comes up with this stuff?
March 20 is … Proposal Day and Festival Of Extraterrestrial Abductions Day — how are those two related?
October 9 is … Moldy Cheese Day — EWW??

Anyway, you get the idea. The list goes on…

Happy National Hug Day!
