Why is International Kissing Day celebrated on April 13?

The origin of the celebration of the Day of the Kiss is relatively recent and to understand it we must go back to 2011, when a couple starred in the longest kiss in history in a contest in Thailand on a day like this. This kiss lasted approximately 46 hours, 24 minutes and 9 seconds. But there is even more and that is that this duo, who already had a mark never registered, managed again in 2013 to surpass themselves and register a new world record with a kiss that lasted 58 hours, 35 minutes and 58 seconds.

One of the curiosities is that in this last competition the couples were not allowed to sit down and had to kiss each other constantly. Yeah, not even when they went to the bathroom or drank water through a straw. Something that explains that since then, in many countries of the world, on a day like this, a contest is held in which lovers must try to get the longest kiss in the world.
