...for it was the Destructoid Day of Hugs! Let me explain. On January 3rd of 2009, a wonderful thing happened in the c-blogs. Essentially, everyone hugged somone.
Or something. Or somewhere. It's not important. What's important is that it was amazing, and showed how this community can be spontaneously awesome like no other can.
What's equally important is that it is now the one year anniversary of this glorious occasion. I bring this up not only because I believe the event is worth remembering, but because I believe it is worth repeating.
Not just today, but every January 3rd from now on. Last year this day was proclaimed a holiday by at least one person,
and I'm inclined to agree that it should be so. A holiday exclusive to Destructoid. Now wouldn't that be great? Sure, there's the site anniversary/Niero's birthday, but every site does something like that. Here we have an opportunity to celebrate an event that is uniquely Destructoid, and I believe this community is great enough to be able to pull that off.
So what are you waiting for? Don't let me down, get hugging! From this point forward, you're not perpetuating a meme, you're observing a holiday.
