What is so great about hugs?
There is no such thing as a bad hug - only good ones and great ones.
They're not fattening and they don't cause cancer or cavities.
They're all natural - with no preservatives, artificial ingredients, or
They're cholesterol-free, naturally sweet, 100 percent wholesome, and they're a completely renewable natural resource.
They don't require batteries, tune-ups, or x-rays.
They re nontaxable, fully returnable, and energy efficient.
They re safe in all kinds of weather; in fact, they re especially good for cold or rainy days. They're exceptionally effective in treating problems
like bad dreams or the Monday blahs.
Hugs are free to give and free to get.
There is no minimum age requirement.
You can never get hurt by giving a hug.
You can give someone a hug at anytime - day or night.
There are also many different types of hugs: hugs of sadness, and hugs of joy, loose hugs with a kiss on the cheek, big bear hugs, a pat on the back hug, you can hug hello, and you can hug good-bye, you can have a one on one hug or a giant pull your shoulders out of your socket group hug, you can hug a human, you can hug a pet, you can hug a stuffed toy, you can hug a tree, you can even hug yourself.
Hugs can warm you from the cold, they can comfort you when you are scared, you can hug while you dance, you can hug while you sleep, there is no time limit on giving a hug. Hugs never go out of style.
There is no restriction on how many hugs you can give. Hugs cross all racial, sexual, personality, and age boundaries.
Hugs are love, hugs are caring, hugs just feel good!
