Tag Archives: 1900s
The holidays are just around the corner, and everyone is putting up their festive decorations and Christmas trees. I found this cute little ad for electric lights on Christmas trees, which some companies coined ‘fairy lights.’
The once revered-now consumer targeted-American holiday of Thanksgiving is upon us, and I’m looking forward to *fingers crossed* a few days where I can relax and enjoy myself. I certainly won’t be heading out on Thanksgiving Day, nor on Black Friday, and this is where I differ from the youth of the early 1900s. In the 1890s, an overwhelming population of young boys plagued the streets on Thanksgiving Day, miming the homeless of years and centuries before. Much like our Halloween, the holiday brought about silliness, revelry, and a lot of mischief!
