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
