So ladies, if you happen to be with an Irishman, African, German or Canadian, today you are absolved. You have a get-out-of-jail-free card. You can place all the blame on me. It's a holiday afterall...
Go find yourself un uomo italiano and plant a big one on him. You won't regret it.
Or, if you are a good girl, you can do as they do here-- one on each cheek.
(but, trust me, as I speak from experience, the "each cheek" thing isn't half as much fun...)
Happy Kiss an Italian Day!
