Humans love kissing. Whether it’s watching the two love interests in a movie finally share a kiss as the credits roll at the end of the show, or whether you’re remembering your first kiss, kissing stirs a lot of emotions. National Kissing Day on June 24 celebrates all of those emotions and even more! Kisses can be performed in many ways. Many people use a simple kiss on the cheek or forehead as a greeting or a way to show affection or respect, but a kiss can also be super romantic. The act of kissing has many different connotations in different cultures around the world. And the kiss isn’t limited to two people locking lips. The famous makeup wearing rock band – that’s still playing concerts – took the name of Kiss back in the 1970s. And Hershey’s has been making its incredibly popular chocolate Kisses for more than a century. (We hate to take away from the idea of thinking the candies were named for romance, but Hershey’s Kisses chocolates actually took their name from the sound emitting from the machine that makes them.) Regardless, all of it is worth celebrating on National Kissing Day!
