Talk to the hand.  Seems like a lot of people give the Internet High Five graphic as an enthusiastic response to something.  How do you do it in real life?  Well, how about a pin or button that is the Internet High Five hand and all you have to do is point to it and smile.  And while we are at it, make it backlit with an LED, 'caus that's what we do around here and a lot of people are germaphobes.

Step 1: Get your stuff together...

You will need:

An LED electronic candle (flickering tealights)

A plastic hand - IKEA Patrull safety bumper caps

Pin backing clasps - found in the jewelry findings/notions at the craft store

Hot glue gun to put it all together

Hacking tools like a utility knife, screwdriver, wire cutters

CAUTION: Know how to use your hot glue gun and handle hot glue only when cooled or you will burn yourself.
That's very cute! Looks like a Mickey Mouse High Five. ;)

This day just got considerably better.
If you want the hand to glow more, you could make a thinner one out of polymorph, or cut one from a sheet of transluscent plastic.
True, but this is pret-a-porter hacking
Haha, I once got thrown out of McDonalds for that...
It was not a happy meal?
