Hippies, their behavior
It is impossible to avoid hippie when we need to talk about 1960s. It was a big counter-culture from San Fransisco to most of Western countries. Most of them are young, like between 17 to 25 and left their family for some reason. They sing, dance, drink and travel everywhere avoiding general lifestyle. They use LSD as a fundamental item and trip to psychedelic world. They mostly wear tie-dyed fabric garment, bell-bottom trousers with hair band or flower crown.
'Summer of Love' occurred in 1967 on the Haight-Ashbury to create a cultural and political rebellion. 100,000 hippies assembled there.
They often appeal about love and peace, such like the Beatles became like them.
