#NationalHugDay: The 9 Most Essential Types of Hugs
THE OCEAN HUG
Pretty Little Liars actress Lucy Hale and boyfriend Anthony Kalabretta demonstrate the "we're so in love and also we're in the ocean" hug, which we recommend trying out when it is not, uh, winter.
THE SISTER HUG
For two sisters as fiercely competitive and talented as Serena and Venus Williams, hugging it out – particularly across the net – can say a lot more than words.
THE HUG JACKMAN
THE ROYAL HUG
Prince William and Prince Kate embrace on a dragon boat in Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island, after a race. Good way to celebrate, if we do say so ourselves.
THE PRESIDENTIAL HUG
THE LEO HUG
Leonardo DiCaprio hugs a fan, who is officially the object of our/the world's envy.
THE VINTAGE HUG
Kirk and Michael Douglas in 1949. The younger Douglas says his father was distant, so he makes extra sure to show his own sons affection.
THE GENERATION-SPANNING MUSICAL HUG
Lady Gaga and Tony Bennett cozy up during their duet at the 49th Montreux Jazz Festival in Switzerland in 2015.
THE BEST HUG
Shelter dogs Kala and Keira captured the country's hearts when this image of them hugging swept the Internet last year. (They were both adopted, don't worry.)
