National Kissing Day-22nd June
Written by Swaati on June 22, 2022
Kissing is a sign of affection that is used throughout the world in many ways, whether romantically on the mouth (with the French leading the way in this arena) or platonically on one or both cheeks.
No matter how it is practiced, National Kissing Day is the perfect time to show someone how much they are loved, appreciated and adored.
History of National Kissing Day
While it is unclear exactly how, why and when kissing began, it seems to have developed over time in certain cultures. Some researchers speculate that it began with mouth-to-mouth feedings from mothers to children. However, other researchers refute this, noting that this would likely have made it present in all cultures naturally.
While some cultures seem to have developed the practice of kissing on their own, other cultural groups have known nothing about kissing until it was shown to them.
One educated guess about the way that kissing evolved is that people who were attracted to each other may have felt compelled to rub faces and noses, and eventually the lips were discovered to have a pleasurable sensation. And the rest, as they say, is kissing history.
No matter how it started, kissing is a delightful way to show affection, whether on National Kissing Day or any day at all!
