On the Ellis Island, the immigration gateway into the United States was the busiest from 1892 to 1954, so the nondescript column over there was named as the kissing post and in it new immigrants were supposed to reunite with their families. It was behind a partition and relatives or friends waited for them to get cleared and once it got cleared the relatives or friends were brought in and the two groups actually used to see each other in it and then join each other. It was named as the kissing post as a number of kisses were getting witnessed in it. and symbolizes reunion of love and freedom now.

Then after that they start biting each other’s eyelashes…. WEIRD!
