2. The beginning of the butterfly kiss

Some people kiss with their lips, others kiss with their eyelashes! A butterfly kiss can refer to the very light brushing of the lips across the skin, or fluttering the eyelashes against someone's face for a sweet ticklish sensation. Such lovely butterfly kisses have gained popularity recently, especially for parents with young kids. These traditions trace back hundreds of years as some 19th-century literature mentions these light kisses between lovers.
