Imagined relationships with celebrities are called ‘parasocial relationships’ and have been a phenomenon for decades. With the advent of social media and being able to see more of your celebrity crush, and feel like you truly know them, they have seen a rise in recent years.

While it can be fun to fantasize about kissing a gorgeous celebrity, there’s nothing like kissing a real life person and building a relationship, which is what National Kissing Day is all about. A celebration of kissing, intimacy, and love, National Kissing Day wants more people whether they be couples, family, or friends, to enjoy a kiss this Friday.
