National Fist Bump Day: The Next Great American Holiday?

One year after the legendary Obama fist bump rocked the world, a new holiday will hit the mainstream: National Fist Bump Day. On June 3rd, get ready to knock knuckles with your neighbor as the pound becomes a new American pastime.

For one day we are calling for Americans, and perhaps even all global citizens, to put aside their differences -- be they class, race, religion or values -- and show their respect with a little bump.
Sometimes all the world needs is a little human touch, a little flesh on flesh action, and a little understanding.

As of right now it's unclear what the day's festivities will entail, if anything other than some knuckle rubbing. Remember to mark your calendar and get ready to greet others in the updated American way.

Check out Michelle Obama and her fist-bumping on The View. Or make your salutation statements with a high-five.
