Everyone has got a couple of friends that are ginger and it’s inevitable that they’re going to get a lot of crap for having flame coloured hair – it’s just one of those things that seems true for every single ginger person out there.

Someone somewhere clocked just how difficult it must be to live life as a ginger person though and decided to come out with the event that everyone in the world can celebrate today: International Kiss A Ginger Day. The origins of the celebration lie with a guy called Derek Fogie, who apparently started it in a Facebook group as a reaction to some mean person setting up International Kick A Ginger Day, which I’m sure we can all agree possibly might be more fun but is a lot crueller on our ginger friends, who probably get enough shit for their hair anyway.

In case you’re wondering how you can take part in International Kiss A Ginger Day then the concept is pretty simple and self explanatory: you just go up to a ginger person and plant a big old smacker on them to show them how much you appreciate them. You need to make sure that you ask for their permission first though otherwise you’re going to get some kind of Harvey Weinstein style allegations thrown your way for obvious reasons. Just be safe and enjoy the occasion.
