Hundreds of gingers are expected to descend on Phoenix Park today.
‘Kiss a Ginger Day’ will host its tenth annual event today at Dublin’s Phoneix Park.
The event, which was initially conceived as a way to prevent bullying of redheads especially in response to ‘Kick a Ginger Day’, has grown to attain worldwide attention.
To celebrate our 10th year, our founder (Derek Forgie) is venturing to Dublin Ireland to meet up with other redheads in Phoenix Park on January 12th. You're very welcome to attend.

“The Canadian Founder of Kiss a Ginger Day (Derek Forgie) is venturing to Ireland to meet and greet other redheads on our special day. Please invite all the redheads (and supporters of redheads) you know.”
Gingers are invited to attend Phoenix Park and meet up at the Papal Cross from 1 pm to 3 pm this Saturday, January 12.
Around the world, redheads are encouraged to tag their social media posts with #KissAGingerDay. Many celebrities have hopped on the trend in previous years including Ed Sheeran, Conan O'Brien, and Jessica Chastain.
