I was brought up in a rather traditional setting where my dad had this special chair and no one else would sit on it because hey...hiyo ni ya mzee wa nyumba so you can imagine things like hugs were unheard of. I moved out, went abroad...still no goodbye hug at the airport. The first time i came back home, my parents were at the airport and i automatically hugged them. It was very awkward because my dad was stretching his hand to shake mine but i just went for a hug instead. He never said anything until a day later when he had his alcoholic drink. He came home and started narrating how proud he was that his daughter hugged him and how he's proud of me. I asked him why he never hugged us before and he smiled and said "Unikoni tatiga ûhoro mûingî"..(Unicorn wacha maneno mingi).

Anyway, i know some of us might relate so when was the first time you guys got a hug from your parents and how did it come about. @FieldMarshal CouchP, how come your generation never hugged their kids?

The first and only hug I received from Mbuyu was when I was enroute to NBO and almost lost my life in a mugging incident and that was still awkward

I neither knew how to hug nor did I ever see it in my nuclear or extended family. I cant learn that comfortably now. The height makes it a nuisance also because you got to stoop like an idiot.

I have never hugged my parents or even my siblings, maybe a few female cousins. My family is conservative / traditional and i like it that way.
