History of the National Kiss Your Mate Day

This piece of online whimsy first found its way onto our calendars somewhere in the deep, boundless universe of the internet. While it's precise inception remains as mysterious as the Mona Lisa's smile, what we know is that its online popularity has been growing year upon year, reaching its peak popularity on April 28th, 2018, with a whopping 435 mentions!

The Art of Celebrating the Day

So, how should one go about celebrating this national day, you ask? It's as complex as a peck on the cheek, or as layered as a full-blown Hollywood-style smooch. Sweep your mate off their feet, or catch them off guard in the morning with a surprise kiss. The more kisses, the merrier the day.

Why is it crucial to celebrate?

Well, to be completely honest, we doubt anyone needs a reason to pucker up. But if you’re the type that likes to intellectualise love, how about we look at it this way? Kissing is a universal language. A soft kiss on the forehead can signal comfort, a peck on the cheek signifies fondness, and a passionate lip lock...well, we're trying to keep things PG-13, so let's say it represents profound love.

Final Words

You don’t need a special day to show your love, but if there's already one on the calendar, why waste it? So, go ahead and plan some surprises, and remember, sometimes a kiss can say what words cannot. Let's give a round of applause for the lovely National Kiss Your Mate Day!
