This Saturday is National Kiss a Ginger Day! The L-Tron family is lucky enough to have three redheads on our team.

National Kiss A Ginger Day


So, what is National Kiss a Ginger Day, you ask?

Kiss a Ginger Day falls annually on January 12th. The day is meant to show love and appreciation for the redheaded individuals in your life. The “holiday” originated in 2009, originally created as a way to combat the bullying and prejudice that redheads sometimes encounter.

Here are some interesting facts about the ginger population:

  • Most Redheads sun-burn more easily.
  • Bees are more likely to sting redheads than blondes or brunettes.
  • Gingerphobia is a fear of redheads
  • Gingerism is the bullying of redheads
  • Red hair grays out at a slower rate than other hair colors.
  • Redheads are more sensitive to pain.

Only 2% of the world’s population has red-hair, so you should count yourself lucky to know even one ginger (
