National High Five Day

Soak your hands in some pickle juice today to get them ready for National High Five Day tomorrow.
A high five is a celebratory gesture made by two people, each raising one hand to slap the raised hand of the other - usually meant to communicate to spectators mutual self-satisfaction or to extend congratulations from one person to another. Glenn Burke and Dusty Baker are often credited with having participated in the first baseball high five in Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles in 1977, with Burke receiving credit for "inventing" the high five (in the context of sports) because he raised his hand first after Baker scored a run.
