What a Ouija Board is Really For

This Norman Rockwell painting graced the cover of The Saturday Evening Post in May, 1920. The Ouija board session reminds us of the parlor games that young people used to play to get close to each other in a socially acceptable way, like the apple-on-a-string game in this post. Really, look at this couple: their knees are touching, their fingers are touching, and they are both blushing. You can imagine the questions they asked the Ouija board, and the effort they put into produce the answer they wanted. Read the story of how real-life couples inspired Rockwell's painting. Found at Weird Vintage.
