National Handshake Day…Make sure not to grip too tight!

Happy National Handshake Day! Today, we celebrate one of the most common greetings between two people.

Did you know that handshakes have been practiced since at least the 2nd century B.C.? Many researchers believe that the handshake originated in the Western world. It was a gesture of peace, demonstrated by the fact that the hands held no weapons.

Today, a handshake is offered upon meeting or parting. It is an expression of goodwill, gratitude and congratulations. Many people believe that a handshake reveals something about the character of the person who gives it. A firm handshake reflects a confident personality while a floppy handshake reveals a shy one.

Today, go ahead and give some nice, strong handshakes. Make sure not to grip too tight!

BAYL my friends!
