As someone with a 1st Wife, Mother and Sister that are all Gingers... not sure I should touch this idea with a 10 foot Psychiatrist.

     Derek Forgie founded Kiss a Ginger Day in 2009 as an alternative positive celebration of redheads’ uniqueness. 

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 their hair color.

     The red hair 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.

     This celebration empowers redheads to feel confident, look amazing, and rock their beauty. Red hair is more than a color; it’s a lifestyle. Besides, redheads are rare. Less than 2 percent of the population are crowned with red hair. And those who are may very well be left-handed, too.
