4th of July Celebrations in 1898

A month or so ago, I purchased an antique book called Fun or the Household. Mostly it is full of parlor game ideas. But there are also ideas for various holidays. The celebration of the 4th of July really caught my eye and made me laugh out loud. Enjoy!

Makes our 4th of July celebrations look positively dull!


  1. Ha! That was so good to read! thankyou for showing us....ha...my boys would've loved to live back then. Not an easy time for mothers though..

  2. Yes, this book made me realize that my grandfather wasn't really as notorious as he seems, but just a product of his times. Goodness! They published manuals on naughtiness then, apparently! Too funny!
