High fives got started on the basketball courts in the 1970’s (Actually 1977) and have continued ever since. High fives more or less became famous when three University of Virginia students, Conor Lastowka, Sam Mitke and Wynn Walent, created today in 2002. It seems like just yesterday high fives got started but they are actually, at least, at least 45 years old! Of course now, we add the fist bump to the greeting which changes everything yet again!
How to celebrate – Give everyone you see a high five, or a fist bump, or just a wave if you are concerned about catching something. Figure out the next greeting craze. A high one gives you a better chance of not catching anything.
