Hug an Atheist Day was started by William Bermudez in 2009 as a parody of other Facebook groups that were popping up at the time that encouraged hugging people. He called for people to run up and hug atheists, or anyone that is a nonbeliever in general, whether they are an agnostic, skeptic, secular humanist, or have other similar views.
It has been observed the first Friday in June since 2009.
In 2019, the tenth year, will be held on June 7, 2019.
