Hug an Australian Day is observed on April 26, 2017. The day is your chance to give a big hug to any Australians today! Hug an Australian Day is an annual event that was founded by Thomas and Ruth Roy. Australians are the citizens of Australia. But if you are not lucky enough to know any Australians in person you can hug a kangaroo or koala cuddly toy.
Hug an Australian Day can also be a good motivation to getting know some Australians via internet for example. When you build up new connections you do not only receive the valuable gift of friendships but maybe you will also have someone to hug on Hug an Australian Day the next year.
