Why People Kiss On New Year's Eve?

She stepped out, leaving the door open. They were at the top of the stairs when the clock began to bong. 
"Midnight?" Roz looked at her watch to be certain. 
"I didn't realize it was so late. Well, Happy New Year." 
"Happy New Year." He took her hand before she could continue down the steps and, laying the other on her cheek, said, "Do you mind?" "No, I don't mind." 
His lips brushed hers, very lightly, a kind of civilized and polite gesture to commemorate the changing year.

New Year's Eve is full of traditions, aside from getting dolled up with friends and families, but one of them dates back to the Romans.
While many hold hands and sing Auld Lang Syne – a traditional folk song written by Robert Burns in Scotland – others often share a kiss at midnight.
