There are some acronyms on internet you can't figure out what they truly stand for unless you browse about them. An example is XOXO, the acronym means Kisses and Hugs. The idea of using XOXO in place of kisses and hugs is something that can be traced back to many centuries ago. During those times, they used X to symbolize kiss and when you look at the letter 'X', it looks like two people are actually kissing each other, and O to symbolize Hug also the letter O looks like two people hugging themselves.

The two letters are used when sending messages or presents to people. The word XOXO can be interpreted to be the plural form of kiss and hug i.e Kisses and Hugs. But today you see people using it on social media when chatting with their friends. Many use it when they do not want to use the real words. Now that you know what XOXO stands for, you can begin to use it in your chats with your friends.

This means hugs and kisses. There are some people who started to become familiar with this because this was used by Gossip Girl. You can use this when you are also ending your email to your friends or your family members.

This can be your way of letting them know that you care about them so much. If you cannot use this in emails, you can also use this when you are sending text messages or chat messages to people that you love.

Some people may send this sarcastically to people they do not care too much about. A lot of times, people place this in order to show others that they are sprinkling some time and attention.

Have you ever wondered what the word XOXO means? Don't worry I will provide everything you need to know about the word.

XOXO can be regarded as an ancient word which means kisses and hugs, the word is used as a sign of sincerity, love and friendship. The word actually emanated from the practice of early Christians who would always place the letter 'X' on letters or envelopes to mean kisses.

Also when you look at it from this point of view, you will see that the letter 'X' looks like two persons with their lips coming together to meet at a point, this better suggests a sign of kiss. Also if you look closely at 'O' it looks like two person's arms coming together, this better suggests a sign of hug. Therefore, XOXO is just like the plural form of XO which literally means kisses and hugs
