YouTube - Free Hugs in Sondrio, Italy

I found this pretty cool.

Shucks. I thought we were doing the rhyming thing. Bugs. Shrugs. Mugs. Tugs. Rugs.

That song always gets to me. Lovely video. Looks like a nice town.

This could also be seen as a great setup for a pickpocket scam. All those people with the big bags.

But I'll continue to view it as warm fuzzy moments.

Thanks for posting.

That's a great version of that song, right up there with Jeff Buckley's version.

Love the song, love the sentiment, but the video is definitely geared towards those who are comfortable with public displays of affection.

Some of us were brought up to be a little more closed/formal/stuffy than that, I suppose.

Thank you...what a wonderful video.

Just in case anyone wonders...my arms are always open for a hug. A hug satisfies my body and spirit. Bring it on!

Excellent. From time to time young people are on the sidewalk here, offering free hugs. I am always up for this! I remember how happy I was when I moved from New England to Southern California and I was around people were hugging once more.
