International Kiss Day is celebrated on April 13 every year, a date that came about thanks to the longest kiss in history, which lasted 58 hours and which was starred by a Thai couple during a contest. The couple, in this way, broke their own record of 46 consecutive hours, achieved on April 13 of the 2016. In many cities, various types of contests are organized on this day in which participants must set kissing records.
On the other hand, July 6 is the International Stolen Kiss Day & World Kiss Day, which is a different celebration.
The idea behind International Kiss Day is to remind people of the simple pleasure associated with kissing for the sake of kissing, as opposed to kissing as a mere social formality or as a prelude to sex or other activities. Kissing can be a joyful and pleasurable experience in its own right. It is an expression of intimacy.
