Kiss a Ginger Day - January 12

Kiss A Ginger Day

Everyone is encouraged to find their favorite redhead and give them a peck on Kiss a Ginger Day on January 12th.

Kiss a Ginger Day, created to promote a more positive spin than its predecessor, gives sweet kisses to redheads who may have been waiting for their hair color.

The red hair gene is recessive and requires two copies for it to exist. And if it does, there is no guarantee that it will happen. If both parents have the gene, there is a 1 in 4 chance they will have a redheaded child. Brown eyes appear in most natural-born redheads (yes, some of us like the bottle) followed by green or hazel. The blue-eyed ginger is the rarest variety, accounting for 1% of the world's population. Consider yourself lucky if you give one of these ginger's a kiss.

If you didn't already know it, you should request permission before kissing someone who doesn't like it – if you didn't know it

A ginger (a.k.a. a redhead) is included in a ginger (a.k.a. a redhead). Many redheads seem to be outcasts for having red hair. This festival helps redheads feel confident, look stunning, and showcase their beauty. Red hair is more than a shade; it's a lifestyle. Besides, redheads are unusual. Red hair accounts for less than 2 percent of the population. And those who are not may be left-handed, too.

In 2009, Derek Forgie founded Kiss a Ginger Day as an alternative positive celebration of redheads' uniqueness in comparison to another day that could easily morph into bullying. Follow him on Twitter @Kiss_A_Ginger or on Facebook at KissAGingerDay.
