Much of the entertainment available will be the same as that entertained back in the Depression... cards, talking, quilting bees, corn shuckings,
homemade music, dances, making things, fishing, checkers, reading and writing.. story telling.
My dad said they would have a corn shucking. Basically, the farmer grew enough hard shell seed corn to grind meal and feed for the year. So, after
pulling the dried ears of corn from the stalk and field, you would have a massive pile of corn. Neighbors would gather and literally it in a circle
around the pile and shuck it to put into the corn crib...when someone would shuck the random ear that turned out red...they would get to drink from
the jar of corn liquor.
