15. The History of the High Five
We all give high fives, but have you ever questioned the history of the high five? Well, I’m about the answer this question you never knew you had! The first ever documented instance of a high five taking place occurred during the 1977 World Series… which feels pretty late and not that long ago, doesn’t it?
Interestingly enough, it does appear that the history of high fives completely revolves around sports – and didn’t necessarily become a huge thing until the mid to late 1900s. While it definitely feels as if the high five should’ve been around for much longer, now the high five is used for just about anything.
