The people (and monsters) over at the excellently named StuffMonstersLike.com are once again running their annual 'Hug A Monster Day' this year. A day when you can show the world just how much you love your favourite monsters! All you need to do is send them a photograph of you cuddling your creature by the end of the day on July 27th and you could win a Stuff Monsters Like t-shirt and be featured on the SML site.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – July 1, 2012
Grab your monster toys, hug them, win prizes. It’s so easy.Across the Earth and for millions of miles around it, countless life forms gather to celebrate Intergalactic Hug A Monster Day on July 27 (Earth Standard Time).
Intergalactic Hug A Monster Day is the only holiday reminding all of humanity and peace-loving extraterrestrials to embrace the monsters in their lives – whatever they may be. Participants are encouraged to grab their best monster friend, evil lawn gnomes, and other minutia of the macabre and give them a big squeeze. Hug them in public, in private, in front of cameras, and share with the world.
It’s so easy. On July 27th, find your favorite horror toys, embrace them, make a photo, and send the pics to email@example.com. Also, post the pics to Facebook, Tweet them [#HugAMonsterDay], and let your friends see the fun they are missing.
The holiday is sponsored every year by Stuff Monsters Like.com, the blog that reminds everyone that it’s okay to be afraid, as long as you are laughing.
Not everyone owns a monster toy. But don’t worry – we’ve got you covered. You can download, print, and fold papercraft monsters from the website stuffmonsterslike.com. You can create your own friend, or even a full monster hoard.
The authors of Stuff Monsters Like.com, who just tried to purchase the moon through Kickstarter, are available for interviews. Please contact them at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you need a little inspiration, take a look at some of last year's entries.
Come on, you don't want your monsters to be left out and sad do you? Well, DO YOU??
