Snuggles

Awww, come here sweetie! Sometimes you just need to be snuggled and hugged. And there’s nothing like having you mommy’s arms wrapped around you, keeping you safe, making you feel wanted and loved; adoring you with sweet kisses; rocking you gently back and forth; keeping the world outside at bay (at least for a little while). Mommy knows just what baby needs! Let me make it all better! Mommy Gina 1-888-430-2010

Kisses And Hugs

I was trying to find out where this comes from. The use of X and O’s to signify Hugs and Kisses, and so far I have come up with this: The REAL definition behind X’s and O’s is this The first mention in literature of XXX for kisses at the bottom of a letter was in 1901, according to the Oxford English Dictionary. The X itself is very old. The custom goes back to the early Christian era, when a cross mark or “X” was the same as a sworn oath. The cross referred to the cross of Calvary and the first letter of the Greek word for Christ, Xristos. Even as little as a hundred and fifty years ago, not many people could read or write. The “X” at the bottom of a document took the place of a signature. They would kiss the “X” as a crucifix or bible was kissed to emphasize the importance of the mark. It was this practice that lead to the “X” representing a kiss. O is an American thing and represents the arms wrapping around someone. Pretty nice don’t you think? Stacie 1-888-430-2010
