    INFORMATION:
    Welcome to the big hug party in Stockholm to celebrate the international hugs day on January 21 in the very best flashmob style. Perhaps we can beat the world record in Group Hugging that is on 10554 hugs? But most importantly, it is clear that we meet and give each other plenty of warm, loving, hopeful and respectful hugs!

    * This is a so-called "flashmob": https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flashmob

    WHEN?
    January 21 at 14:00 (please feel free before)
    WHERE?
    Sergelstorg
    HOW?
    Because it is a "spontaneous flashmob" with no arrangement, it will also be spontaneous and a bit messy. At 14:00 a small group of people will be in the middle of the square and start hugging. Immediately after that, everyone is welcome to "stream to" and continue the call. More info closer to the event!
