Social Musings 101

People Who Have Contributed to Society

So with the Happy Turkey Day just right around the corner the person or persons we take our hat off to are the people who created the chair. So according to Wikipedia the chair got its origins in Egypt. The chair wasn’t sat in and commonly available for regular peopleĀ until the 16th century. The chair was a sign of royalty. Only royal people and the exclusive or rich were allowed to sit in chairs. Really? Yes. Really. So I provided a link in this article that will give you more information about the history of chairs. But when you’re stuffing your face with turkey going gobble gobble (and not from the turkey) as your bottom sits and rests….thank all the men and women before you who contributed to that comfort that you enjoy today and probably take for granted. I just got a thought that would be so hilarious if we didn’t have the idea for a chair but we all had to stand at gatherings dinners and restaurants as we ate. That would be so hilarious. Well enjoy your day night or evening once again. Click the link to read more about the people who have contributed to society by building chairs.
