Today is International Kissing Day, and people took to Twitter to celebrate. The goal behind the awareness day is to remind people to recognise the simple value of a kiss between friends, lovers, family, and yes, even pets. Today, we are encouraged to appreciate love and intimacy in all forms — and to beat existing world kissing records.
With the hashtag taking off, users expressed their support (or lack thereof) in tweets range from sweet and sexy to petty and self-deprecating. Mostly, there were lots of dogs.
Ahead, check out some of our favorite posts from the day.
