People still do potlucks, but I've never heard of anyone doing things like proper picnics, debutant balls or inviting friends over for afternoon tea with tiny cakes and fingerfoods...or maybe that's just me? Anyway, I miss that.

Tea parties, quilting bees, and sitting outside on your steps with your neighbors.

Also, I remember as a kid, my parents had neighborhood potlucks. Dad would set up a huge wooden table in our front yard, Mom would throw a pretty tablecloth over it, and all the neighbors would bring a dish. My dad made wine and would serve that. We did that every weekend. It was nice.

There is a dance organization here that holds dances once a week in a big ballroom, and the women are supposed to sit in chairs and wait till a guy comes over and asks you to dance lol like they used to do back in the day.
