What Does the “Free Hugs” Video Have to Do With It?

The following video has been viewed over twenty-two million times on YouTube!

(Make sure your speakers are turned on)


I think you know why I included this video on a blog called “Marriage Success.” A fast kiss on the cheek or the lips is certainly a show of affection. But take a few seconds more and give your spouse a nice, deep hug. The affinity you deliver with a great hug is worth its weight in gold. And don’t wait for the “right moment” to give your husband or wife a fabulous hug. Give them freely. They’ll work wonders!

Additional info on the above video: After watching it, I found out about another Free Hugs “campaign” that was carried out in Santa Monica and one in South Korea, Amsterdam, Hollywood, Israel, China and on and on.

One guy, Juan Mann, started this phenomenon of simply giving out “free hugs.” If you head over to YouTube and type in “free hugs,” you’ll find a ton of videos on this incredible wave of friendship and affinity.

Juan Mann decided to brighten up the lives of passerbys in Sydney, Australia by giving them free hugs. As a result hundreds of thousands, possibly millions of “free” hugs have been dispensed by complete strangers!
