A hug to feel snug as a bug

A hug to feel snug as a bug

January 21 was National Hug Day in the United States,so we asked our readers who they'd like to hug. Here are the best answers ...

1. From the winner's circle

I'd like to hug everyone on the Young Post team for all their hard work putting together such an amazing Junior Reporter Awards ceremony on Saturday and making it one of the most special days of my life!

2. CY's the man

I want to give a hug to Leung Chun-ying. Hongkongers' confidence in him is at an all-time low, so I hope that by giving the chief executive a hug, he can run Hong Kong better and try harder.

3. Get well soon, Granny!

I'd love to hug my grandma because she has been terribly ill the past few months. With her being in the Philippines, I feel uneasy, and I didn't even get to celebrate her 84th birthday. I miss her so much!

4. Hurts so good

This week's Top 10 pains me internally. Just the thought of hugging the Teen Wolf and Maze Runner star Dylan O'Brien makes my heart break and shatter into a million pieces because this action seems so unreachable and absurd to me due to the fact that I may never even meet him. But, if I did actually get a hug from him, and feel his arms around me, I imagine he would smell absolutely divine, and I would just hold on to him forever and never let go.

5. A real tree-hugger

I would hug a tree for helping us breathe and live. Plus it'll be a good reminder to care for our environment since there's still six months until National Tree Day on July 26!

6. Those who need it most

I would give a hug to all the poor children in the world to show them love and let them know someone cares about them.

7. Who's a Goodboy?

I would love to hug Dennis Goodboy! I got to hug him at the first-ever Junior Reporters Awards. However, it's been several years and quite frankly, I miss him a lot! I mean, who doesn't love our dear Young Post pal?

Tacye Hong, 17, University of Toronto

8. Secret admirer

Definitely my crush; Hug Day is a good excuse to hug my crush without him knowing that I secretly like him!

Hui Sui-ting, 16, Madam Lau Kam Lung Secondary School of MFBM

9. Lend a hand, lend a hug

I would hug my domestic helper. She has been working at my home for a decade, so she's like family. She is a great example of a hard-working person. She works 10 hours a day without any complaint, and she never loses her temper or shouts at me. She always smiles and even jokes about things. I want to give her a warm hug.

Sunny Kwok, 13, Immaculate Heart of Mary College

10. Miss you already

I would like to give a warm hug to the voice of Doraemon, Lam Pou-chuen, who died earlier this month. Many Hongkongers grew up watching Doraemon and listening to his voice, so I'd like to hug him and say thank you for the memories.

Leo Ho, 13, King Ling College
