As the years have gone by, with various traditions changing and evolving over the years, so have people’s ways, too. This is quite apparent because you can easily see how people’s attitudes have changed towards everything, both in a good and bad way. When it comes to the good side of it, it seems like most people have become very open-minded about certain topics that are discussed frequently, and especially with what’s currently happening around the world. Everyone’s definitely a lot more up-to-date about what’s going on everywhere, mainly due to the fact that they’re able to access all sorts of information online, from so many websites. It’s sort of like they depend on the internet for most of their purposes, and even though it may seem helpful, there’s always a limit for everything.
Also, as there was no internet or social media platforms back then, people were certainly much kinder and considerate; cared about other people’s feelings. Things were 10 times positive and there wasn’t any sort of negativity going on anywhere, but fast forward a few decades, as it’s become the complete opposite in some ways.
Those days, during a time where texting wasn’t even heard of, people used to communicate through letters, and put huge amounts of dedication into writing a proper letter to someone close to them. There was that thrill of sending it and waiting impatiently for a reply, and then the overjoyed feeling you get when it finally arrives a couple of days, or a few weeks later. People used to write letters because they could express their feelings in a way that they could never manage to do verbally. And then there was the whole matter of posting that special birthday card for someone, how could we ever forget that? This was something that was a top priority those days and everyone did it without fail; that’s how important it was. Now, this whole concept is totally lost on the current generations, as texting is their only way of communication.
A flower delivery service in Epping was also a big thing back then, as people did this to show how much they loved their significant other.It was a type of concept that only the people who could afford did it, which made it a rare sight, and it’s a very nice gesture. Many flower shops provided a variety of lilies and roses. These concepts should be brought back full force, especially the hand written letters, as they’re very significant and special, too.
