Valentine's Day is just a couple of days away, but the hopeless romantics all over the world are celebrating all the days leading up to the special celebration of love. Friday, Feb. 12, marks Hug Day, which you celebrate by hugging the people you love.

You don't need a lover to celebrate this wonderful day, you just need people that are special to you. In fact, it is the only day in the Valentine's Week that is not loaded with romance. It is special enough to be celebrated with your lover, but also sweet enough to be shared with close friends.

This hug day, show the important people in your life that you love them by hugging them tightly. You can also share some lovely messages to share a telepathic hug to the loved ones that may be far away.

Messages such as:

  • A loose hug says it's OK, A Normal hug says thanks, A Tight hug says i need you, A more tight hug says I can't live without you. Happy Hug Day 2016.
  • I wish I was an Octopus, so I could hug you with all of my eight hands. Happy Hug Day.
  • A hug is a handshake from the heart. So always remain close to my heart and best wishes on this hug day.
