International Kissing Day!!


This day reminds people to recognize the simple value of a kiss between friends, lovers, family, and even pets.  Kissing today is often associated with romantic feelings but there is more to a kiss.  In history, before it was common for people to be able to write, an “X” would be signed.  Then the signer would kiss the X as a pledge to honor the signature.  Could this be where the “X” symbol came to represent a kiss?


Fun facts that you probably didn’t know.

·        Research shows that 5% of people over age 45 are locking lips at least 31 times a week (that’s 4-5 times a day).

·        Passionate kissing burns 6.4 calories a minute
