10 Things From The Past We’ve Almost Entirely Forgotten About Table Manners
In today’s day and age, folks treat the dinner table pretty casually. Sometimes meals aren’t even eaten at the table, instead being devoured on the couch or even eaten on the run in order to get from one meeting to the next.
But sitting down for a dinner or a lunch used to be a pretty involved affair. Before TV dinners took over, table manners were incredibly important for everyone, no matter what age.
