National Handshake Day History

National Handshake Day honors the most common greeting in the world. According to Hamlet Hub, throughout medieval times, when most men were covered in target, the handshake was one way to determine if someone was a friend or enemy. If one male extended an open hand to another, this meant an invitation of friendship and the gesture would be reciprocal. National Handshake Day is held annually on the last Thursday of June.
