Kiss A Ginger Day- January 12
Redheads are people with hot orange-red hair, light skin, sometimes freckled and sometimes even blue or green eyes.
Kiss A Ginger Day is a day created in 2009 by Derek Forgie, an actor, activist and stand-up comedian, Redhead of course, who wanted to empower the redheaded children around the world who sometimes suffer from child bullying others. He set this day in response to a day someone invented in November, a day called "Kick a ginger day," inspired by the South Park series.
