Meteor Watch Day

Meteor Watch Day is a day to appreciate and watch meteors! They are often called "shooting stars" because of their quick, bright movement across the sky. It's amazing that something so small can be seen from such a great distance.

Meteors are bits of dust and ice that enter our atmosphere and burn up, creating the effect we see. They come from all over space, but most originate from comets. Every day, Earth is hit by about 100 tons of meteoroids (the name for particles before they reach Earth's atmosphere), but most are too small to be noticed.

The best time to watch meteors is after midnight when it's dark outside and the shower is at its peak. You don't need any special equipment—just find an open spot where you have a clear view of the sky and relax! Meteor Watch Day is a perfect opportunity to do just that!

Handshake Day

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

National Handshake Day is a special day to celebrate the handshake, a gesture that has been used for centuries as a sign of respect and trust. On National Handshake Day, we take time to appreciate this simple act and the positive impact it can have on our lives and relationships.

The handshake is often the first interaction we have with someone, so it’s important that it leaves a good impression. A strong handshake conveys confidence and sincerity, while a weak one can appear hesitant or insincere. The way we shake someone’s hand can also say a lot about our character – whether we are shy or outgoing, polite or rude.

A good handshake should be firm but not too tight, and should last for about two seconds. It’s also important to make eye contact during the handshake to show that you are sincere in your greeting.

The benefits of shaking hands go beyond just making a good first impression – research has shown that shaking hands can help improve communication and cooperation between people. In business settings, for example, studies have shown that employees who shook hands with their boss were more likely to receive raises or bonuses than those who did not shake hands.[1] And in social settings, shaking hands helps build rapport between people by creating an opportunity for mutual physical contact.[2]

So why not celebrate National Handshake Day by reaching outstretched handshakes all around? Whether you’re meeting someone new or catching up with an old friend, take some time today to appreciate this simple gesture – and maybe even learn how to do the perfect handshake!

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