Fads of the 1920s

    There were many fads in the 1920s, such as the rise of flappers. Flappers were the new liberated modern women of the 1920s. They had bobbed hair, wore short skirts, heavy makeup and sheer silk stockings. They would also smoke and  drink illegal alcohol in speakeasies.
    There were also many other fads during the Roaring Twenties, such as new styles of dancing. People were now dancing things like the Charleston, the Foxtrot, and the Shimmy. People would also participate in dance marathons. The longest recorded dance marathon was 3 weeks!
     Movies were becoming more popular in the 1920s. Silent movies were becoming very popular, and silent movie star Charlie Chaplin, was rising in fame. The first sound movie was the Jazz Singer. It was nominated for an Oscar and won 1 Academy award.
      Sports were popular before the 1920s, but in the 1920s, sports were becoming more popular thanks to the invention of radio. The invention of radio also brought them comedy shows, news, live events, jazz, variety shows, drama, opera, and more.

     There were many fads of the 1920s, just like there are fads today. Some  may be silly now, but they were considered to be very common in life back in the 1920s. These are just some fads of the 1920s.
