Here at Lomography, we have a habit of checking our calendars for the most unusual and amusing holidays. So when we found out that April 26th is Hug An Australian Day, we knew we just had to dedicate the Friday playlist to our favorite Australian artists!
Though the origins of this event are unclear, Hug An Australian Day has quickly become popular over the last few years, and is celebrated by sending the likes of greeting cards and e-cards to Aussie friends. — About, daysoftheyear.com
