When bringing in the corn harvest on the family farms of the 1800's, neighbors would  gather for a "Shuckin". 

While the ladies made a big meal, the men would get to work on their pile of corn to find for the corn licker jug  buried at the bottom.  First to find a red corn cob in the teenagers pile got to kiss their sweetheart.

Little girls and babies were entertained by making corn shuck dolls.  Dolls were as varied as the talent and time allowed.

  I hope you enjoy this craft of times gone by that I learned as a young girl. here.
