On what day is National Kiss a Ginger Day celebrated? January 12

What is National Kiss a Ginger Day? This day is all about loving those who have red hair. Redheads are some of the rarest expressions of genetics in the world. In fact, true red hair is only present in 1-2 percent of the population.

Who founded this day? Kiss A Ginger Day was established in 2009 by Derek Forgie as part of a Facebook group, intended to offset Kick A Ginger Day that takes place in November. Because of this agressive day, redheads everywhere were tormented and assaulted in schools all over the world.

What is the hashtag? Use #KissaGingerDay when posting to social media.

How to celebrate: Some cities host “Kiss a Ginger” parties in celebration of the day, so do a Google search to see if there is one near you.

If you don’t feel like going around kissing random redheads (we don’t blame you), you can at least celebrate by performing a random act of kindness for a redhead in your life.
