After I missed Pi Day this year, I’m happy to report that the Internet reminded me in time to, in turn, tell you that today is International Hug A Medievalist Day. Yes, it’s a thing. It’s been a thing since 2011, when somebody invented it.
If you are curious now, you can read an ultra-short interview with the inventor, Sarah Laseke, over here. And if you’re unsure about hugging protocol, here’s a tongue-in-cheek advisory table on whether to hug away or rather not, and how.
Enjoy this day, whether you getting an extra hug or not!
