: Hi, I'm 12 yrs old and doing an English assignment. Could you tell me the origin of the phrase 'keeping up with the Joneses'?

Hi, Joanna. On the page where your question is shown (not this page but just back up one page), there is a box, right at the top, which says "Google," then a box, then "Search." Type "keeping up with the Joneses" in the box, and click on search. You will find the correct answer there. SS
