November 28th is Knee high day in Japan. Here’s why. The date, November 28th is numerically written 1128. The first two numbers (11) resemble double i (which reads ii, meaning “good” in Japanese). Two (2) is pronounced similar to an English word, knee. Although eight (8) is pronounced hachi (spelled as ha-chi in Hiragana) in Japanese, only the first letter (ha) is taken. The total combination then establishes the phrase ii-knee-hai which translates to Good Knee High. On the 28th of November, Twitter users shared pictures of girls wearing knee-high socks with the hashtag ＃いいニーハイの日, ii-ni-hai-no-hi, which means “Good Knee High Day”.
Here’s a sample of some of the best tweets shared on the 28th of November last year.

There’s always a room for jokes. And because it’s Japan, we joke with anime characters.
