Social status and social norms are different for different groups. For example, the high-status upper class society focuses on wealth and sophistication during social gatherings. Social events such as black-tie fundraisers and massive 200+ invitation birthdays are extremely common events for the wealthy to display their wealth, interests, and hobbies. In contrast, the poor may have fundraisers and birthdays as well, but these events seem to focus more on being worthwhile for each individual and are much more modest in appearance. Similarly, social groups formed of young individuals will be different than those of the elderly. While the young tend to exhibit competitive spirit and the need to fit into the group, groups made of retired individuals are more focused on appreciation of each other and spending time to enjoy a variety of less energetic activities. The society norms vary for many reasons between groups but some of the main differences are based on physical, mental, and emotional experience and ability.
