what is a Kiss?

A kiss is one's lips pressing against another human, or an entity. Kissing's cultural connotations are broad varied. A kiss may convey feelings of love, passion, affection, gratitude, greetings, friendship, peace so good luck, among many others, depending on the culture and context. In some cases a kiss is a ritual, formal or symbolic gesture that shows commitment,

respect, or sacrament. The word came from Old English cyssan ("to kiss"), in turn from coss ("a kiss").

Kiss Day History

As Valentine's Day approaches, it's the ideal time to discuss why humans kiss and how this entire idea of kissing began to demonstrate affection and tenderness. Kisses are definitely not needed from a purely reproductive standpoint.

One theory says a kiss is from the age of the caveman. It is believed that a mother pre-chewed her baby's food in primitive time and transferred it' in a kiss.' The kiss becomes a sign of affection and care between mother and child and among adults later on.

There's another theory originated from the sacred religious act. There have been examples from around the world as early as 2000 BC that show that people could have brought their faces together to symbolize spiritual union. Even in the Indian culture, it was believed that the exhaled breath was part of the soul, and demonstrated the joining of their souls by two people bringing their mouths together... Even in the Vedic Sanskrit texts of India, we find references to "drinking moisture from the lips." In the third century A.D., the Vatsyayana Kamasutra comprised a whole chapter that lavishly described ways to kiss a lover

. In the 6th century in France, dancing was one way to display affection, but every dance was ended in a kiss. Seemingly, Russia was the first to integrate the kiss into the marriage ceremony, where a promise was sealed with a kiss. The Romans kissed to greet each other and as the Roman Empire conquered the world the concept of kissing to show affection spread all over the globe.

The Reason of Celebrating the Kiss Day

A gentle kiss is a very good way of expressing what can not be said in words. A gentle kiss is an intimate expression of love... when you first kiss your partner; it's a whole different feeling.

Send symbolic Kiss

One more thing if you are far away or for any reason cannot meet the person you love on this special day don't worry you can always send that person a lovely gift or flowers that can be delivered right to that specials person doorstep, and seal it with a kiss or with a "XoXo". Most people know XO as a sign-off representing love, affection, or friendship on letters, cards, emails, chat rooms and text messages. No one is sure how the sign XOXO ultimately came to mean "hugs and kisses". But at least we know the "X's" meaning "kisses" preceded "O's" as "hugs".
