The original cuddle
It was on March 29, 1986 that Reverend Kevin Zaborney had the idea of the first day of cuddling. He found that the beginning of the year and until Valentine’s Day (February 14) was a period of stronger tendency to depression. The end of the year celebrations, a large number of people would suffer from a lack of emotional contact.
The idea of freeing one’s affectivity without waiting and receiving signs of love was born in the form of a movement toward “free cuddling”.
How to proceed?
The principle is simple: an individual offers, in a public place, a hug without compensation to a person chosen at random and the manifest by a small sign on which it is written “free cuddle”.
From you to me all the same, you have to dare.
