Good Knee High Day

kneehighday

Today Nov 28 is known as いいニーハイの日 which translate as Good Knee High Day

So how does all this came about? Read on to find out.

Nov 28 = 11-22

1 = i
11 = ii = いい which means Good

2 = ni
8 = hachi which somehow along the way can be read as hai
Katakana of High = hai

so there you have it, 11-28 = ii ni hai = Good Knee High
