With January being one of the coldest times of the year nationally, this holiday is intended for loved ones to cuddle up and stay warm!
Whether it be a night that's nice and chilly or even unusually warm, cuddling up has a surprising amount of benefits that anyone can appreciate. Cuddling releases oxytocin, a hormone in which has quite a few health benefits. Aside from giving us a warm and fuzzy feeling, oxytocin reduces the amount of pain we feel. All of which is more than enough for anyone to find a reason to cuddle.
This holiday brings people together in both a literal and figurative manner by cherishing the touch and company of our loved ones.
