International Kissing Day takes place on 6 July in the UK. However, the day has now been adopted worldwide and is also known as ‘National Kissing Day‘ or ‘Kissing Day‘.
Kissing Day aims to make us appreciate a kiss in its own right. No conventions, no social norms, just a kiss. Across the globe we embrace the kiss by embracing someone else.
Competition to hold the record for the longest kiss is rife. On 6-7 July 2005 the record was set in the UK at 31 hours and 30 minutes!! Then on Valentine’s Day 2009 Nikola Matovic and Kristina Reinhart from Germany set a new record of just over 32 hours! On 13 February 2011, a Thai couple, husband and wife team Ekkachai and Laksana Tiranarat locked lips and began their quest to break the current longest kiss. After 46 hours and 24 minutes they claimed a new record for the longest kiss. Impressive!
To celebrate this excellent excuse to kiss someone, we are running a competition exclusively on the Vibe Facebook group. Go ‘Like’ our page to join in the fun!
