History

Kevin Zaborney is credited with coming up with the idea of National Hugging Day in 1986. It was included in Chase’s Calendar of Events; Zaborney’s friend at the time was the granddaughter of the proprietors of the publication. He chose January 21 as it fell between the Christmas and New Year’s Holidays and Valentine’s Day and birthdays when he found people are generally in low spirits. Zaborney considered that “American society is embarrassed to show feelings in public” and hoped that a National Hugging Day would change that,[1] although he thought that his idea would fail.
