Yes, it’s a real thing. And any excuse to provide some extra smooches is well worth it, right? The average person spends 2 weeks of their life kissing, so let’s up those numbers today people!

The good people at nationaltoday.com tell us a little history of how we got to International Kissing Day, and kissing in general.

“If we go back in time, we can thank the Romans for the widespread practice of kissing in Europe. They described kissing in three forms: the osculum (a friendly peck on the cheek), the basium (a loving kiss on the lips), and the savium (the most passionate of kisses on the mouth). In Roman society, when, where, and how you kissed someone was an important indicator of social status.”

One study said that 36 percent of Americans had their first kiss in middle school, with 26 percent in high school, and 22 percent in elementary school. And sadly about 2 percent of Americans have apparently never been kissed.
