The annual day on Wednesday, July 6, is a perfect chance for you to share a loving moment with that someone special in your life.
And it is our chance to reflect on kisses and hugs that you have shared on camera over the years.
From sponsored hugs for charity to a kiss for a Teddy Bear and even one for Santa in West Boldon, we have it all.
So pucker up for an embracing spotlight on the past.
