Free Hugs

"Free hugs"

About a month ago came across a woman offering "free hugs" near Kamara in the centre. I thought that it was some kind of fraternity stunt or perhaps a prank of some kind. Still passers by treated her with a lot of gentle humour and some even took her up on the offer.However , I see from Flickr that this is a worldwide phenomenon.

I just came across this video on YouTube that shares some light on this, at least the Greek example.

"We made this Greek version of the "Free hugs" project, for use in a course at the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki."
