KISS A GINGER DAY
On January 12, everyone is encouraged to find your favorite redhead and give them a peck on Kiss a Ginger Day.
Created to support a more positive spin than its counterpart, Kiss a Ginger Day brings sweet kisses to redheads who may have once been teased for the color of their hair.
Redhair gene is recessive and requires two copies for it to present itself. Even then there is no guarantee it will. If both parents have the gene, there is a 1 in 4 chance they will have a redheaded child. Most natural born redheads (yes, some of us like the bottle) have brown eyes, followed by green or hazel. Coming in at 1% of the world’s population, the blue-eyed ginger is the rarest kind. So if you give one of these ginger’s a kiss, consider yourself lucky.
HOW TO OBSERVE
It’s easy. Kiss a Ginger! Use #KissAGingerDay to share on social media.
Derek Forgie founded Kiss a Ginger Day in 2009 as an alternative positive celebration of redheads uniqueness as opposed to another day that could often accelerate into bullying. Follow him on Twitter @Kiss_A_Ginger or on Facebook at KissAGingerDay.
