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.

I enjoy listening to nothing but Christian Music. Camping and hiking is something that I enjoy. I guess that is because I am an Eagle Scout. Blogging is something I enjoy doing too. I have been blogging since 2004. However, I have been blogging on Courageous Christian Father since 2012. I am married with 1 daughter and 2 step-sons and a step daughter.
