YAYYYY! (And you can, too!)

We got this note from a Burner named Janet (note: Happy Birthday, Janet!) this morning and we’re grinning from ear to ear. What’s a YAY!? Click the link to see this sweet little photo story and find out for yourself.

My campmates from Figment Slums/Figmint Cafe invented this a few years ago, and it’s a Burning Man tradition with them. In 2010, our next door neighbors took up the cry. YAY!

Now we’re spreading it to the default world. We’ve done it twice in Tucson, and once in Santa Cruz. YAY!
Playa love and joy spreading on the streets!
If you decide to try this where you live, don’t forget to bring a camera and tell us about it!
