National Hug a Bear Day

November 7th National Hug a Bear Day

The National Hug a Bear Day is celebrated every 7th of November each year. This day aims to make people understand the importance and benefits of hugging. People should not hug only their stuffed teddy bears but also one another. Hugging gives us comfort, warmth, and the feeling of being loved. Hence, the National Hug a Bear Day is the ideal time for you to hug both your lovely teddy bears as well as the people that you care for in your life.

Bear Hug Day


Unfortunately, even with extensive research on this topic, we are not sure how the National Hug a Bear Day began. We are not even sure who founded this day. But still, we can make a good guess as to why such day was founded – perhaps a person or a group of people thought that we humans should hug not only our teddy bears but also each other. We must do so in order for us to get all the benefits of hugging.


As mentioned earlier, the National Hug a Bear Day is celebrated every November 7 each year. This means that the upcoming National Hug a Bear Day will be held on November 7.

Why Celebrate

The main reason why you should celebrate this day is that this is your perfect opportunity to give a hug to someone you care for in your life. They may be your parents, siblings, grandparents, cousins, best friends, or your other relatives. This may also be the time for you to make amends with someone you had an argument or misunderstanding with. Giving each other a hug will mean that you are now in peace with each other. There’re similar love holidays as well known as the National Girlfriend Day & Wife Appreciation Day.
