Grab Your Wife, Grab Your Kids: Hug A Monster Day 2013 Fast Approaches!

It’s that time again.

More awesome than name-brand ketchup! More entertaining than Mardi Gras in Des Moines! More exciting than cats! (Suck it, cats.)

Intergalactic Hug A Monster Day returns – as it does every year – on July 27. And this year, Stuff Monsters Like will continue to celebrate this historic and meaningful tradition. Hug A Monster Day is a day to show appreciation to all the monsters in our lives.

You, too, can celebrate by taking your favorite monster (toy) with you to work, school, or play. Show it off. Amaze your friends. Baffle your boss. Frighten your psychiatrist. Hugging your favorite mutant may be the best feeling you have all day.

The Head Monsters at SML are still hungover from last year’s party. We blame ourselves. We should have known better than to let Spooky mix the witches’ brew. So, we’ll be celebrating from the cool, dark comfort of our deepest dungeon. But expect a few selfies. They’re inevitable.

How will YOU be celebrating this year?

Will you build your own automaton army?

Throw a monster-themed cocktail party?

Steal your neighbor’s urban chickens to feed to your pet chupacabra?

Whatever you do, don’t forget to send us a photo of you hugging your monster! On Monday, July 29, we’ll pick our favorite photo, and feature it on the prestigious SML blog – where dignitaries and ambassadors go for their monster news.

You may also get some fun monster-themed swag.

So grab your wife. Grab your kids. Grab your camera. And don’t forget to grab your monster!

Because monsters are people too.

Our monster mascots help us with our evil schemes, as well as taking care of chores around the mansion. From writing press releases to collaborating on blog posts, this blog would not exist without them.
