Kiss Your Mate Day

April 28 is Kiss Your Mate Day!

This holiday is a celebration of relationships and romance and for showing appreciation to your special someone. According to researchers, kissing is healthy and important in relationships, especially in the long term, as it usually fizzles out with time. Kissing your partner often will help you maintain a solid degree of intimacy that some lasting relationships may be lacking.

Observe Kiss Your Mate Day by engaging in a smooch session with your significant other. If you’re single, use today to let the object of your affections know how you feel and maybe you’ll be kissing by the end of the day!

The current Guinness World Record for the longest kiss is 58 hours, 35 minutes, and 58 seconds held by Ekkachai Tiranarat and Laksana Tiranarat from Thailand.
