Happy International Hug a Medievalist Day

by J J Cohen

Each year this celebration grows exponentially. We at In the Middle hope that yours is suitably festive and filled with warm embraces. And remember: the line between a cheerful hug and an awkward capture is only about five seconds. Pace yourself accordingly.

And thank you,  Sarah Laseke, for your instigation of this most sacred of festivals. It has now come to rival Leeds and Kalamazoo on the medievalist calendar.

Thank goodness for facebook or I would have forgotten. I was reminded, however, that I asked my officemate to hug me last year (he used the word "cornered" but it's all semantics). Happy Hug a Medievalist Day!!
