Pucker Up With These Photos of Sweet Smooches

(He then joked that it was “also National Knowing About Fake Holidays Day.”) Anyone disappointed by the lack of intimacy that a simple handshake conveys will be happy to know that July 6 is International Kissing Day. (Time recently dug into the origins of holidays like this, such as National Splurge Day and National Onion Ring Day.)
Since International Kissing Day comes but once a year—unless you count National Kissing Day on June 24—we’ve compiled these photos of smooches from our archives to help you celebrate it right.
