You’ve probably seen Big fat gypsy weddings, if not you’ve probably heard of it. A doccumentary finding out about the lives of the irish travellers. We might laugh at their huge eloborate dresses, but you have to admit it, theres something about them that is just so fascinating. There are many rumors about the irish travellers, from that they steal things to them leaving rubbish everywhere. Some may be partly true, but i dont think we’d ever know what the gypsy life is really like unless you were born into it. After all they don’t like to mix with gorgers (non-gypsises) and they keep their culture and traditions close to their hearts.
Before Big fat gypsy weddings, most people thought of the irish travellers as nothing more than ‘scum’, but after the programme was shown, peoples views are slowly changing of the gypsies. Although there dress sense may be elaborate, people are realising that their core moral beliefs may be similar to our own. But will we never really know the truth about gypsies, after all they’ll only let us hear what they want us to.
so have you had any encounters with the gypsies, what are you opinon on them?
