Taxes got you down? Well, here’s a “pick me up” for your enjoyment.

The third Thursday in April is National High Five Day, a holiday UVA started back in 2002.

Keep the festivities alive. Go lay one on your co-worker, classmate, significant other, stranger on the street, or fellow happy hour bar dweller. Anyone anywhere is fair game.

There’s nothing like paying it forward, right?

Need inspiration as to how to best execute your high five? Sacha Baron Cohen as Borat has a pretty good one to imitate.

Plus, if the Caps win, that’ll take the high fiving to a totally other level. Awesome.
