Kisses shared on any day of the year would be just as nice. However, July 6 is particularly special as it marks International Kissing Day in appreciation of the special act.

To celebrate International Kissing Day, here are different types of kisses and the meaning behind each one.

It’s often a type of kiss shared by lovers but mothers are also known to plant one on their own little angels.

The lips are not the only recipient of kisses. The chivalrous gesture of a kiss on the hand speaks volumes. It could also send shivers up and down the spine from the excitement and passion it implies. The Eskimo kiss is a sweet and simple sign of affection. It’s also practical for people who live in cold places as it limits the danger of locked lips in freezing weather. An earlobe kiss could be a matter of life and death, so tread lightly.

A kiss is also a sign of a special connection between two people. Hence, it can express intense passion as well. The French kiss is no stranger to a couple who are madly in love.
