Kissing is a normal and daily act that we do many times throughout the day: to greet an acquaintance, to say goodbye to our partner before going to work, as a cure for a wound of a child or as a sign of affection .
We usually give kisses on the cheek and even sometimes it is such a quick and mundane expression that it almost hits the air because our lips do not touch the skin of the other person.

Why do we kiss? The origin of the kiss
It is believed that the origin of the kiss is thousands of years ago, when the mother had to chew food to pass it on to her son from mouth to mouth and thus feed him.
Already in the 4th century BC The Greeks allowed kisses in the mouth only between parents and children, close relatives or close friends of the family. It was not until many years later when the kiss began to be used as a sign of love in the couple.
The kiss also has different connotations according to the culture, for example, the Russians kiss in the mouth as a greeting, the French give three kisses and the Eskimos rub their noses.
Today, kissing children's mouths is a very normal act in many families, a custom that occurs naturally, like someone who gives it on the cheek. I did it for a long time, until the colds and colds went from one to another systematically during a harsh winter and I decided to take more aseptic habits.
