I agree Jonaj, I'm not used to the hugging thing these days. I don't hug very much at all, nor kiss and I do think it is a "new" thing to me that there is so much of the aforementioned… also think it is about as fair dinkum as a $3 bill.
I can't quite get used to all the crying on television etc. either.
Might be I was brought up to not display emotions so publicly, but then a lot of the time (re the crying) I don't know how people can become so emotional over some things, well enough to cry over anyways.
