Kissing is a common expression of affection and love in many cultures. Although it is an integral part of almost any romantic or sexual relationship, we often kiss to express platonic affection. Depending on the culture and context, a kiss can express love, romance, passion, sexual attraction, affection, friendship, greeting or farewell, peace, and good luck. According to statistics, kissing is practiced by 90% of cultures.
So pucker up for National Kissing Day! Don't be shy to express your feelings and get involved. Kiss whoever you think deserves it, play Spin the Bottle, reminisce about your first kiss, make a list of the best kisses you've ever had, have a romantic moment by kissing your significant other at the top of a Ferris wheel, or simply treat yourself to a Hershey's Kiss.
