High Five Friday

"High Five Friday” (or “High-five Friday") is a day to celebrate the week’s accomplishments, such as by giving a person a “high five” hand gesture. “High Five Friday” has been cited in print since at least 1999. It’s not known where the first “High Five Friday” celebration occurred.


Wikipedia: High five
The high five is a hand gesture that occurs when two people simultaneously raise one hand each, about head-high, and push, slide, or slap the flat of their palm against the flat palm of the other person. The gesture is often preceded verbally by a phrase like “Give me five” or “High five.” Its meaning varies with the context of use but can include as a greeting, congratulations or celebration.

high-five friday
A magical day, which kicks off the weekend. The predecesor of Super High-Five Saturday and Super-Dooper High-Five Sunday. Coined by a man by the name of Jason Ritchie and seen widely at music festivals, one will hear it screamed and be beckoned to give a highfive to this crazy fuck. The act of the highfive is spectacular and truly adds to the enthusiam and team sprit of a festival!

What is High Five Friday? High Five Friday was started by a blogger named Meg from A Dash of Meg.  High Five Friday allows us to “take time to celebrate our weekly achievements, successes, and abilities. Within a week we accomplish so much, but forget to give ourselves credit for all that we do, so High Five Friday allows us to take the time and recognize these important accomplishments.”
