This week is Holy Week for Christians, including Holy Wednesday, Maundy Thursday and Good Friday before celebrating Easter on Sunday, April 21. But mark your calendar for some lesser-known of this week's holidays, including High Five Day. It's almost hard to imagine a sporting event without the high-five, but the gesture really hasn't been around that long. This Thursday, April 18, is High Five Day, a day to mark the most famous of all celebratory gestures. But when and where did the high-five begin?
Every Thanksgiving my girls and I have a tradition — we turn on the television to the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade and go through page after page of Black Friday ads. Each girl takes a notepad and writes down potential presents for people on our list (and of course, themselves.) The next day, we grab the ads and head out for a little shopping. But what do you do with all of those pages if you don't go shopping? Turns out it's one of those kill-two-birds-with-one-stone type things.
