Kick Off The Holidays with a Hug

When’s the last time you hugged a stranger?

Next time someone goes to shake your hand, why not greet them with a hug instead? How will it change your interaction with that person? What will it say about you?

You’ll likely attend a few holiday-esque functions during the next month, which means you’ll meet plenty of new people. Ergo, you have oodles of opportunities to give out free hugs.

Speaking of holiday-esque functions, The Minimalists are en route to New York City to begin our Holiday Happiness Meetup Tour 2012 on 11/26. If you’re near any of our ten meetup cities, make sure you stop out, hear us speak, ask us some questions, and get a hug. Bring a friend (our tour hugs are available for only a limited time and are non-transferable). You can RSVP for FREE, as well as find dates, times, locations, photos, and what to expect from our meetups on our tour page.

We will live-tweet our cross-country antics as we travel from city to city, coast to coast, to meet a ton of new people. Follow us on Twitter — @JFM@RyanNicodemus, @TheMinimalists — and join in on the fun. Hashtag: #minstour

We look forward to your hugs and conversations.
