National High Five Day 2010!
National High Five Day, the fake holiday I founded 8 years ago, is this Thursday, 4/15. To celebrate this year, we made this video. Give someone a high five on Thursday!

A description we wrote of the holiday back in college that I think sums up the holiday pretty well:

Imagine that while on your way to class, you pass a dignified looking middle-aged man in a suit. You, of course, are wearing the same underwear as yesterday, a pair of pants off your floor, and a T-shirt with something ironic printed on it. Instead of noticing this respectable pillar of society fifteen seconds or so before your interaction is fated to occur, and lowering your head to avoid his disapproving scowl, you take another course of action. You confidently walk forward, and at the moment of passing, you and the businessman simultaneously raise your hands and wordlessly high-five. The sound of the perfect high five resonates, causing those nearby to silently and enviously take notice. You both walk on, and likely relate the story to whomever you eat dinner with that night. There is no reason why this should not happen with alarming frequency.

Congrats, JoeGoblin, on getting this holiest of days front-paged on Wonkette, which is now encouraging DC locals to overwhelm the Tax Day Teabaggers swarming their city with totally sweet high fives.
