    ooohhh modern xenia eh...well, in this awesome novel by Alan Brennert called "Molokai'" he demonstrates traditional Hawaiian hospitality when the new exiles are sent to Molokai and usually stay with friends or relatives until they have their own place...but that's not too well known...

    So how about... in Harper Lee's "To Kill a Mockingbird" Scout's poor classmate Walter Cunningham comes over for lunch and pours maple syrup on his food. Scout mocks him but Cal drags her into the kitchen and makes her eat alone because it is unacceptable to be rude to guests.
