Coast Shaming / City Shaming (CreativeJamie.com Dictionary)

Coast Shamingsnow-christmas-lights-bush1.jpg
Also known as “City Shaming.”
This is the process by which characters in a film (usually a Christmas movie) will impose their belief that small town America is superior in every way to city life.  IE, the way people behave in cities is inferior to the tradition, hospitality and decorating grandeur of rural villages.  This phenomenon is especially prevalent in Hallmark Christmas movies.

 

About the CreativeJamie.com Dictionary:
The CreativeJamie.com Dictionary is something I’ve wanted to do for a long time, but never got around to until now. I had a writing college in class during which one assignment challenged us to make up our own words. I sucked at it (hard), but I loved the idea, so I’m giving it a go now.
