What is a Kiss?
A kiss is the pressing of one's lips against another person or an object. The cultural connotations of kissing vary widely. Depending on the culture and context, a kiss can express sentiments of love, passion, affection, respect, greeting, friendship, peace and good luck, among many others. In some situations a kiss is a ritual, formal or symbolic gesture indicating devotion, respect, or sacrament. The word came from Old English cyssan (“to kiss”), in turn from coss (“a kiss”).
History of Kiss Day
As Valentine's Day approaches, it’s the perfect time to explore why humans kiss and how was this whole concept of kissing to show love and tenderness start. From a strictly reproductive standpoint, kisses are certainly not required.
A theory says that a kiss is from the caveman age. It is thought that in primitive time a mother pre-chewed the food for her baby and transferred it 'in a kiss'. The kiss becomes a sign of affection and caring between mother and child and later between adults.
There's another theory originated from the sacred religious act. There have been examples from around the world as early as 2000 BC that show that people could have brought their faces together to symbolize spiritual union. Even in the culture of Indians, it was believed that the exhaled breath was part of the soul, and by two people bringing their mouths together, showed the joining of their souls... Even in India’s Vedic Sanskrit texts, we do find references to “drinking moisture of the lips.” In the third century A.D., the Vatsyayana Kamasutra comprised an entire chapter lavishly describing ways of kissing a lover. In the 6th century in France, dancing was one way to display affection, but every dance was ended in a kiss. Seemingly, Russia was the first to integrate the kiss into the marriage ceremony, where a promise was sealed with a kiss. The Romans kissed to greet each other and as the Roman Empire conquered the world the concept of kissing to show affection spread all over the globe.
A tender kiss is a best way to express what cannot be said in words. A gentle kiss is an intimate expression of love…when you kiss your partner for the first time; it’s a different feeling altogether. You enter a dreamy world of happiness and innocence where everything seems to be just perfect. A tender kiss on the forehead of a girl means she means the world to the man and can definitely initiate a love filled relationship you always wanted. This is one day in the valentine’s week when you can express your emotions in a tender, comforting and love-filled way. And when you make this day special and celebrate it with cards and flowers and cakes to make it all the more memorable and exceptional this day remains treasured for the rest of your lives as part of the moments you want to cherish forever. When celebrated well this turns into a day that you can always lovingly reminisce and remember.
