Best Answer

The origin is not known given that its origin is not recorded anywhere in history. The closest theory that holds any clout is that early in the evolutionary process, clapping was a learned behavior that was used to call attention before the use of a language. One can see how it could grow from calling the attention of another to signal food or danger to signaling a pleasing act.
