National Handshake Day

National Handshake Day

This holiday, National Handshake Day, celebrated the last Thursday of June each year. I am not sure when this holiday was started either.

Greet one another with a holy kiss. The churches of Christ greet you.

Romans 16:16

Greet one another with a holy kiss.

2 Corinthians 13:12

Greet all the brethren with a holy kiss.

1 Thessalonians 5:26

All the brethren greet you. Greet one another with a holy kiss.

1 Corinthians 16:20

As you can see, it tells us to greet with a holy kiss several times in the Bible. So make sure we greet our fellow brothers and sisters in Christ with a holy greeting.

At one time a mans handshake was his word. It was a very firm hand shake.

One of the deacons at a church I attened, members would kid him. He has big hands and a strong firm shake. Plus, he owns a tractor repair and supply store. We tell him, with that grip you can undo lug nut off a tractor tire with his bare hands.

A Handshake

  • A firm grip reflects a confident personality.
  • Used for Greetings
  • A floppy handshake reveals a shy one.
  • Used as a binding agreement.
  • It is believed to have been practiced since at least the 2nd century B.C.
  • Used to congratulate someone.
