Kissing Canaries

Christmas festivities over, and Carnival weeks away, I wondered, what’s on the agenda for January? Surfing the internet showed that January 21st is National Hugging Day. I had to smile, because it seemed to me that the Canary Islands have no need to elect a specific day, since hugs and kisses are seen on every street corner and supermarket isle. Indeed, you might be forgiven that you’d stumbled into an awards dinner, watching the effusive greetings when friends meet in a bar or restaurant, including the most macho of men.
