Sacred Cows and Holy Kisses

What on earth is a "holy kiss?" Is it a kiss on the cheek, a kiss on the lips, a sensual kiss, or a hesitant shy peck? Is it the "kiss of peace" which we share in worship each week, a hug of greeting or a handshake? Whatever its form, what makes it "holy"? In fact, what makes anything "holy" or "sacred"?

"Holy, holy, holy is the Lord of hosts; the whole earth is full of his glory." (Isaiah 6:1-5)
"Greet one another with a holy kiss." (Romans 16:12-16)
