Entertainment for Americans throughout history, and especially this century, has been and continues to be extremely important. In the 1900s recreation centered on churches and school.  Social functions surfaced in the form of pie and box suppers, revival services, school plays, games, and just family and neighborhood gatherings.

During the 1950s, a person could tell at first glance whether an individual was from the city or country.

Each had labels: a lad from the city was termed a “slicker” and a lad from the country was considered a “hick.” Obvious features such as gallused pants, brogan shoes, short-cropped hair, backward mannerisms, and a hillbilly twang, revealed a boy had country roots. The city boy sported longer hair, that usually looked wet, and combed back in “ducktails.” He rolled his jeans up at the cuff, carried his cigarettes in the sleeve of his T-shirt, and wore tennis shoes or penny loafers.
