Discussion Question - First or Third person?

When you're doing events with your reenactment group and are speaking to the public, are you doing first person (I like to drink beer) or third person (They drank a lot of beer in period because the water wasn't safe to drink)?

I'm looking for a couple of folks who do first person whose brains I can pick. I'm trying to wrap my brain around why my persona would be explaining things (cooking, sewing) that should be things that everybody knows in our time period. Any excuse would do. I just need something to help me over a mental block.
