X or O?

I am familiar with the shorthand xoxo, meaning hug/kiss, but today I started thinking:

Which symbol means hug?

Which symbol means kiss?

Perhaps you have always known this, but I realized that I do not!  So...the next natural step was to search google for information.  Some sources said they were interchangeable, but I liked urban dictionary's explanation the best: 

Hugs and kisses
If you look at each letter like it was representing two people from a bird's eye view, the "O" represents the arms of those persons hugging each other while the "X" is evocative of two people kissing each other.

How sweet!  Hope you have had a great Wednesday!
