National High Five Day in
Days to go:
National High Five Day is a worldwide celebratory event promoting a common human interaction – the high five. The observance encourages participants to celebrate victories, big or small, through the act of high fiving each other. It aims not only at celebrating these achievements, but also at promoting positive communication and reinforcing solidarity between people, irrespective of their backgrounds, professions, or ages.
National High Five Day traces its roots back to 2002 in the United States. The day was conceptualised by students at the University of Virginia who gave out high fives as part of a university project. While it originated from our southern neighbours, this day has found resonance with Canadians as well. The act of high fiving is well embedded in the Canadian culture, being prevalent in sports, recreational activities, or as an informal, friendly gesture among Canadians themselves.
In Canada, National High Five Day usually finds a higher profile during sports or public events. Across the country, individuals, teams, or organisations may spotlight the high five on this day through a collective action or through a series of activities planned to honour the day. It's an opportunity for Canadians to cultivate a spirit of camaraderie and positive reinforcement. While there is no exclusive date for Canada, National High Five Day generally mirrors the international observance, which takes place annually on the third Thursday of April.
