Southern Hospitality is a family, or individual helping another, just because its the right thing to do. People call it Southern Hospitality because people from the South are known to be nice folks. If someone comes knocking on the door needing food, or a place to stay for the night, most people down here will gladly help.
random person knocking on the door- Hello Ma'am, im in terrible need of some food, do you think you've got a little to spare?
Woman-Yes sir, just come on in and ill fix you up a plate!
random person-Thank you for your Southern Hospitality ma'am

Young couple: We'd love to!
Woman later: She had a child out of wedlock and he's Asian! Tisk tisk, what has this town come to...
