Whatever activities you have planned for your Memorial Day weekend, have you ever considered how vastly different your holiday would be in, say, 1955? Probably not, but that didn't stop us from envisioning it for you. Behold, 10 things you might have done over Memorial Day weekend if you lived in the '50s.
If you were going away for the weekend, you might have taken off in a plane like this.
And stayed in a hotel like this, possibly with a hairy, well-oiled man in short shorts.
You may have gotten in some beach time with the girls.
Or with the small children you perhaps had too young.
You probably would have gotten in some quality Vespa time.
And lots of leaping.
Also tons of flirting, while wearing your most flattering romper.
The evening activities would have been so festive and gay!
Until you had to get back on that plane and come home.
Or maybe you would have just stayed home the whole time and talked on the phone in your bra. And updo.
Happy Memorial Day!
