You’re getting on the subway heading into the city during the morning rush. As you take a gander at your fellow passengers, you notice the usual – sleepy faces, people standing in silence with their headphones on and maybe that drunk person that’s been sleeping on the train since the night before. Let’s be honest, it’s kinda depressing. You want your day to start off right.
Well tomorrow is the first day of the rest of your life! Why can’t this Thursday be exhilarating? Why can’t everyone just be laughing and social? Why isn’t everyone high-fiving to an upbeat soundtrack like the one on our website?!?
If you haven’t already heard – National High Five Day is coming.
Yes, you read that right. It single handedly is the BESTEST non-HOLIDAY of them all! Or at least in the top five.
Scheduled to take part on the third Thursday of every April, this year’s festivities rest on the 15th. A tradition that began in 2002, this holiday is the celebration of having a good time. And who can argue that?
So how does one participate in National High Five Day? Do you need a permit? Special training? Heck no! Simply raise your hand, left or right, and guide it into someone else’s. As they collide they should make a healthy smack sound that signifies success. This action alone will make you the envy of all your peers. The most important part to remember is to repeat the process as many times as possible. By the end of the day your palms should be a rosy red and slightly bruised.
High Fiving Tip: Focus your eyes on the elbow and follow through with your forearm keeping your writs stiff. Works every time.
