National "Say 'Hi' to Joe" Day is a fast-growing grassroots holiday started in the United States in 2003. It honors the men and women who bear the "name of our Nation" -- Joe. From Average Joes and Sloppy Joes to GI Joes and Joe Millionaire, the name Joe is the quintessential American name.
From the holiday's humble origins, it has spread to become a national phenomenon. And now with a Joe as Vice President and Joes throughout media and pop culture, it has the potential to become even greater. Whether your name is Joe or not, you can spread the word about this truly awesome holiday that celebrates the Joe-ness in all of us.
