Kissing Day is celebrated on two different dates – it can be April 13th or this Wednesday July 6th. The thing is, besides kissing, another good way to celebrate is in the movie theater and not diffusion. Even more so if you don’t have a mouth.
On the screens, the kiss can appear in a more discreet or intense way, between humans or Disney animals, in moments of happiness or farewell. Some classic scenes, such as “Titanic”, for example, they precede moments of tragedy. Others, like that of “Notebook”symbolize reunion.
