Meeting and Greeting Games

Printer-friendly versionSend by emailPDF version

When two or more people meet they may greet each other with a hug ;  they may smile, rub noses, bow, touch each other on the arm, salute, nod, or give a thumbs-up sign.  They may say "Hello", "Good Morning", "How Do You Do", "What's Up", "Hi Babe", "Hi Man", "What's Happening", "How Are You", "Respect", "Peace", or "Asalamu Alaikum".  They may shake hands.  But then shaking hands is an 'all-purpose' term, for there are warm handshakes and cool handshakes, secret handshakes, and extended multiple-action handshakes.
