Gypsies

So, my latest Netflix binge has been "My Big Fat American Gypsy Wedding" and follows the stories of modern Romnichal Gypsies living in America. I didn't even know such a culture existed, to be honest, and now I'm intrigued. Anyone live near a Gypsy community? Tell me more!

  • You should look up the original UK show, but try to find the ones that aired in the UK rather than the ones they aired in the US (if the narrator has an American accent, it's the censored version).

  • I meet a Gypsy when I was in Italy. My friend told me to stay away from them because they go to the bazaars and try to scam people. I too saw the show on Netflix. I have already watched the entire season because I was so intrigued by their culture.

  • Gotta LOVE their '80's over the top style! They always look dressed up! That's one thing you don't see here in the USA anymore...
    Did you see the dresses light up??

    Maybe one of her parents or grandparents was a gypsy and the other was a gorger?

    Gypsy is actually a racial slur - its the equivalent of the n word, but in America, a lot of people don't realize that. The real terms are Roma or Traveler. The Romani are Indian who migrated across Europe. Travelers are Irish. Both have some branches that settled down with outsiders instead of staying with their family groups, and both have their own set of rules they live by - they're not interchangeable.
