This is why everyone should hug each other more often

Today, on January, 21, the whole world celebrates International Hug Day. The idea behind this special day is that hugging each other is the best way to share kindness and love.

We here at LikeAble decided in honour of this occasion to once again prove to you that here we should follow the example of our animal cousins — for they can be just as gentle and kind-hearted as humans.

You are my sunshine!
