Family and Holidays During the Great Depression DSC Dr. Nancy Duke From 1929-39, nearly 25% of the American Labor force was unemployed. Even though the economy tanked, banks collapsed and factories shut down, families still celebrated the holidays. Even during the most difficult of times, family bonding was key in weathering the storm of despair. Sock monkeys with red heels, Red Ryder bb guns and oranges were the popular gifts. Bank holidays were created. The average new house cost $3,925.00, gas was 10 cents a gallon and ground beef was 12 cents a pound. "Brother can you spare a dime" was the hit song of the era. The session will be held at the Advanced Technology Center (ATC) located at 1770 Technology Blvd.
