    • lol…great question! I don’t know the full history, but I believe it started in Japan and has spread throughout most of Asia. You see it most often with girls, but boys do it too. I’ve heard different histories of it, from “V” for victory from World War 2, to just a simple “peace”. I think it’s pretty much just a standard thing kids and young adults do in most pictures to show they’re having fun. It’s kind of infectious…there are getting to be more pictures of me where I’m doing it. 🙂
