History of Kiss Day 

According to one idea, kissing dates back to the Neanderthal era. In prehistoric times, a mother is said to have pre-chewed her baby's meal and conveyed it "in a smooch." The kiss evolves into an expression of love and caring for both a parent and her child, again between individuals.

Another hypothesis emerged from the revered religious performance. It has been demonstrated by historical evidence that humans could have pressed their lips together to signify spiritual connection as early as 2000 BC.

In Indian culture, two persons putting their mouths together symbolized the uniting of their energies because it was thought that released breath was a component of the psyche.

The choreography was a popular means to express admiration in 6th-century France, but a kiss followed each dance. 

Russian marriage ceremonies, which reinforced a pledge with a kiss, appear to have been the first to incorporate kissing into the union rite. 

Romans used to welcome each other by giving each other kisses, and as the Roman Empire expanded across the globe, the practice of kisses to express compassion extended everywhere.
