National Hug a Kevin Day

National Hug-a-Kevin Day invites everyone…to hug! This unusual holiday fell in love with many people – it is eagerly awaited every year. It is associated with the famous comedy-drama series Kevin (Probably) Saves the World. Celebrate with us and hug everyone you know by name!


National Day includes the name Kevin for a reason. The first known person with him was Saint Kevin, who existed in Ireland. He was a very kind, merciful and compassionate person, loved and respected by everyone for everything he did for the Kingdom. The popularity of the name increased in the 20th century. Perhaps some impetus was given by the famous musician Kevin McCarthy. In 1963, the name ranked 11th in popularity!

And now about hugs… American scientists have studied the behavior of people and came to the conclusion that the majority does not show emotions in public. You should overpower yourself and hug with an old friend! Especially since it’s a simple action: it helps reduce stress, strengthens the immune system and improves heart health. Find time for hugs and feel a little happier.

The purpose of the holiday is simple: to make people open up to society and show their emotions and feelings. The organizers fear that this will soon become completely impossible: people are used to communicating via the Internet, increasingly choosing it instead of face-to-face communication. But the date has a chance if you support it!
