I bring you greetings this week as part of our headbanger challenge, as that is the theme chosen by Lanny for us to focus on for our headers this week “Greetings”.
I could greet you in various different languages such as:
Hello, 你好 (néih hóu), Halito, Bonghjornu, Čao, Ahoj, Hej, Hallo, Saluton, გამარჯობა (gamarjoba), Γειά! (ya), नमस्ते (namaste), ᐊᐃᓐᖓᐃ (Ainngai), 今日は (konnichiwa), Labas, Kia ora, नमस्ते (namaste), Cześć, Привет (Privet), Ciau, Helô, nuqneH, (is salām 'alaykum) ألسّلام عليكم
Alternatively greetings are the way in which we express ourselves physically using body language to one another.
The most simple of these is when someone greets you with a smile…
You know when someone greets you with a warm smile that the meeting is off to a good start.
If someone is further away then they may wave in greeting to say hello…
As you can see in this picture the wave is still accompanied by a smile in greeting too.
When a couple get married they greet each other as man and wife with a kiss…
and the rest of the wedding party greet them with confetti…
One of the closest of greetings is the hug, a way of showing that you not only greet the person but that you love and cherish them too.
For my header I have used one of the other most universally known and accepted forms of greeting the handshake.
I hope you’ve been able to work out at least some of the greetings and their country of origin. Let me know if you do. There’s one in there I will be very impressed if anyone gets it. Well there's a challenge!
To see what the other team members have greeted us with, follow the links to their blogs in the right hand menu bar.
Thanks for visiting, see you tomorrow.
