Kissing is a fundamental expression of affection, adoration, and romance, which releases brain chemicals such as oxytocin and make people feel bonded to their partner. To celebrate this bond, Kiss Day is celebrated every year on February 13—a day before Valentine’s Day.
Several types of research have claimed this gesture to be an important aspect of every relationship. In this post, we will throw light on the importance and significance of dedicating a day to this gesture.
Legends behind kiss:
This gesture is believed to have originated with a mother-child relationship. It is thought that in primitive time a mother pre-chewed the food for her baby and transferred it ‘in a kiss’. The kiss then became a sign of affection and caring between mother and child and later, got transferred between adults.
On the other hand, India’s Vedic Sanskrit texts state that kissing was a way to connect two souls.
In the third century A.D, the Vatsyayana Kamasutra comprised an entire chapter lavishly describing ways of kissing a lover.
As a symbol of intimate relationship and love life, the kiss was first made a part of the marriage ceremony by Russia. Here, a kiss was a gesture to say, ‘I am all yours now.’
