National High Five Day

Date When Celebrated : Third Saturday in April

Gimme a high five. As a matter of fact, give everyone you see a High Five!

The "High Five" is a celebratory slapping of hands atop raised arms. It's been a standard for celebration of sporting victories, special event, competitions and many other activities for decades.

It's fun , and easy to celebrate this special day. Give a High Five to everyone you see. This includes friends, family, passersby, and total strangers. The more high fives you give, the better.

BTW: It's okay to give a "Low Five" today. But, only after you've given the "High Five".


Origin of "National High Five Day":

The creation of this special day dates back to 2002. It was created by college students at the University of Virginia. Those students were Conor Lastowka from San Diego, California, Sam Miotke of Corvallis, Oregon, and Wynn Walent of New York City. They celebrated with lemonade and a profusion of High Fives.

Visit the National High Five Day website.

The act of giving a  "High Five", dates back to 1977, when it was first used during a Basketball game. Their congratulatory gesture caught on rapidly, and has been popular ever since.

This is referred to as a "National" day. However, we did not find any congressional records or presidential proclamations for this day.


Flower of the Day: Dinner Plate Dahlia

Recipe of the Day: Brussels Sprouts with Caraway
