A kiss is a way to express your true feeling toward the person you love or feel connected to. When you kiss a person on the forehead, it denotes respect while a kiss on the cheeks denotes affection. It is good for your health too, keeping you young and happy.

International Kissing Day is celebrated every day on July 6 to spread awareness about kisses and their importance of them in daily life.

Celebrations of International Kissing Day started in the United Kingdom and then spread to other countries. It was first celebrated in the early 2000s. 

February 13 is also celebrated as International Kiss Day as it is a day before Valentine’s Day. Kiss Day precedes valentine's Day.
