What did people do for fun in the 1960's?
As a teenager in the sixties, we enjoyed the "British invasion", meaning we wore our hair long, we dressed in paisley shirts, bell-bottom magenta jeans with wide belts and wore desert boots on our feet. This was the era of mind-expanding drugs, so many of us experimented with LSD, mushrooms and many other recreational drugs. Those lucky enough to afford a car bought the 'muscle car', such as the "Chevelle SS 396". Woodstock capped off the era of the 60's. So, we hung out, promoted peace and turned on!

Teens in the 60s played games and sports, went to parks, spent time with their friends, watched television, went to drive in movies. Bowling and dancing was popular among …some. Some went for drives and listened to music. Drugs and concerts gained popularity among the young as well during the 60s.
We like to ski, snowboard, dog-sled, ice-fish, snowmobile, hike, ice skate. There isn't any malls anywhere but Anchorage so we like to do most of our activities outside.

They had balls and parties in winter and they went to the theatre and the opera. In summer, they had picnics, long walks and rides. They had guests for supper or tea all the y…ear round and afterwards they played cards and society games like charade. In autumn they hunted. This picture concerns only the rich in the West, of course.
They played with pogo sticks, hula hoops, yoyos, jacks and elastics.
Baseball, football, basketball, and DEFINENTILY soccer. In fact, 1962 was the year Brazil won the world cup and England won in 1966
Australia had an excellent climate and the highest per capita income worldwide during much of the 1960s - though certainly not so today. To a certain extent it is "California"… with more land and less people. The primary source of immigration to Australia in the 60's was from Europe, and in particular Great Britain. The reason was World War II. The people were looking to get away from the greyness and the stiffling economic situation back home. Australia was everything that Europe was not. New, open and with a need for new people to build it. From an Aussie's point of view, the real reason of migration to Australia was to bring more to enable the country to grow. Perhaps its greatest prime minister was at the helm at the time, Sir Robert Menzies. Hid immigration motto was, "Populate or perish." So Australia was populated for prime reasons of greater security in numbers and labour shortages. Therefore, migrants had government assistance to do this, it also helped lower population in the more war torn countries. Migrants came from Italy, Greece, England, Scotland, and a few other European countries. The closeness of World War II being at Australian shores had a frightening effect upon Australia as a whole with its small 10- million population post WW2, and people realized the need to blend in and grow quickly. As for the first response Australia is nothing like California. Australia is as big as mainland USA, has same climates as USA, although the cold is not as severe and the seasons are at opposite times of the year. It should be noted that Australia maintained a rigid immigration policy in the 1960's that effectively blocked the entry of Asians. That discriminative policy was relaxed in later decades but it was close to impossible for a Chinese or Indian to obtain landed immigrant status in the Australia of 1965. Surreyfan

They liked to play a game called bear betting. They would have a ring of bear out in the ocean and put as many dogs as there were bears. Then they would bet on who would win, …they bears or the dogs. Whoever was left standing after the fight, would be the winning bet.
They did things such as, watched tv with their family, went to movies, skating rinks, went bowling, played many sports, danced, listened to music, and read.
Well people like to have fun for lots of reasons. Some people do it because they are bord. It just hapensðððð
they danced.....listened to the radio and drank. they did not have technology like we do today...
There was clubs that people would join, not gangs, but like hangout clubs, and they would listen to records and drink lemonade or coffee. And they didn't hang around street co…rners like gangs and groups do now. There were lots of coffee franchises, bowling alleys, pubs, and stuff like that that they could do. Sometimes they would even sew their own clothes, and maybe make stuff out of duct tape. That didn't really become popular until the '70s, though.
Not much. Poland was occupied by Nazi Germany from 1940-45 and then by Soviet Russia.

Making fun of other people is a sign of a person's low self esteem. Making fun of others, like bullying, is an effort to raise one's self esteem by attempting to lower that of… anyone else's. It doesn't work, of course, because it's a way to NOT deal with the real problem.
