July 6th is International Kissing Day, which originated in the UK and quickly spread around the world. The purpose of the holiday is to make people remember the simple joy of kissing. Remind your partner or family about how much you love them with a kiss.
Kissing people for centuries expressed respect, passion, and love. There are French kisses, formal kisses on the cheek, greeting and farewell kisses, kisses on the hand as a sign of respect, and many other types. International Kissing Day has been celebrated since 2000, after it was officially introduced in the UK. Over time, the holiday became popular in other countries, where they supported the idea of bringing people together with the help of kisses and the rejection of social conventions for one day.
- In 1918, the term ‘French kiss’ first appeared; the American military introduced it after being stationed in France, where they stumbled upon very forward French women;
- The early Christians used the kiss as a ritual greeting, as evidenced in the Bible, which says: “Greet one another with a holy kiss.”;
- Kissing can help you lose weight; passionate kissing burns about 6.4 calories per minute.
