Hippie Chick Party Supplies are based on the
hippie subculture, originally a youth movement that took birth in the mid-1960s in the United States. Later it
quickly spread to other countries all around the world. And hippie culture is still present all over the world. As
per the etymology the word "hippie" means a person who is aware.
The earlier hippie culture was to adopt the
countercultural values. Some created their own communities and social groups. Some were against the Vietnam War.
Some loved psychedelic rock. Some believed in free sex. Some used drugs to attain alternative
The Human Be-In popularized hippie culture in
Golden Gate Park, San Francisco, in January 1967. The 1969 Woodstock Festival on the East Coast was the next move,
which drew over 500,000 people. In Mexico hippies formed La Onda Chicana and came together at Avándaro. In New
Zealand at Nambassa, hippies adopted alternative lifestyles. In the UK, hippies gathered at the free music
festivals at Stonehenge and called it as summer pilgrimages. In Australia hippies came together for the 1973
Aquarius Festival at Nimbin and MardiGrass or the annual Cannabis Law Reform Rally. In Chile, a major hippie event,
"Piedra Roja Festival", was held in 1970.
Hippies wanted freedom from society
restrictions and they wanted to choose their own way. They wanted to find new meaning in life. Rejection of the
society rules could be seen in their in their send of dressing and grooming. Their dress sense made them instantly
recognizable to other hippies. Their appearance was a visual symbol of their fight for individual rights and it
separated them from the main society.
One prominent feature of hippie culture was
travel, domestic and international. Many hippies loved hitchhiking because it saved them money and also allowed
them to meet new people. Hippies used to travel light and were able to just pick up and go wherever they wanted.
Hippies could be mobile at a moment's notice. Hippies had no worries about money, hotel reservations and vehicles.
They had just one backpack, could stick out their thumbs and hitchhike, and stay overnight at other hippie
households where they were always welcome.
Between 1969 and 1971, hundreds of thousands
of hippies traveled using overland route to India. They had little or no luggage and very little cash. All followed
the same route. They hitch-hiked across Europe to Athens and then on to Istanbul. Then they moved by train through
central Turkey via Erzurum. Then they continued by bus into Iran, via Tabriz and Tehran to Mashhad, then across the
Afghan border into Herat, and then through southern Afghanistan via Kandahar to Kabul, then over the Khyber Pass
into Pakistan, via Rawalpindi and Lahore to the Indian border. Once they reached India, hippies went to many
different places but gathered in large numbers on the beaches of Goa. Some of them crossed the border into Nepal to
spend months in Kathmandu. Most of the hippies hung out in Kathmandu in tranquil surrounding of a place called
Freak Street. This place still exists near Kathmandu Durbar Square.
Hippies had different values and sense of
dressing and this had had a major affect on the contemporary culture. Music, arts, literature, film, television;
everything was influenced by the hippie culture. Since the widespread hippie movement in the 1960s, many aspects of
hippie culture have been adopted by mainstream society. The music festivals, the health food and even the
cyberspace revolution, all are the gifts of the hippie culture.
You may select Basic Party Pack from our
Hippie Chick Birthday Party Supplies which includes all the stuff you need for 8 guests. Or you may go with the
Deluxe Party Pack from our Hippie Chick Kids Party Supplies that has much more items than the Hippie Chick Basic
Pack. The Hippie Chick deluxe pack is also for 8 guests. If you need favor boxes as well, I would suggest you to
choose the combination of Deluxe Party Pack & 8 Favor Boxes from our Hippie Chick Kids Birthday Party Supplies
as it would cost you much more if you purchase them separately. If you think that the number of guests may exceed 8
you should consider Hippie Chick Party Pack Add-On as it contains extra items for the extra guests. You may order
Hippie Chick Party Favor Boxes separately as well.
I've personally used
