What the heck does “Acha” mean?

Acha means several things to different people. For you sports fans it could mean the American Collegiate Hockey Association, or my personal favorite the American Coon Hunters Association.  “Acha” also means “good” in the Hindi language.  I wasn’t aware of that at the time of naming this blog, but having been to India and having those ties in my family, I really like the meaning.

For me, the term “Acha,” pronounced “Ah – ch – ah!” grew out of a joke between my high school friends, because it was the sound our friend Erin made when she sneezed.  It was the greatest sound ever – so much more unique than just an “Achoo”. The term stayed with us and became applicable to all our general exciting adventures, rather than just sneezing.  As the story goes, this Acha Gallery was derived from a friendly sneeze and tons of memories.
