Easter will soon be here. It started me thinking, "When did women begin wearing Easter bonnets?"
According to one source, Easter bonnets actually connect back to a Eurpoean tradition. To celebrate spring, people would dress in new clothes and decorate themselves with flowers. I suppose that is sort of like an Easter bonnet. I celebrate Christ's resurrection at Easter and the new life I found with him. (https://www.forsythfamilymagazine.com/history-easter-bonnet/#)
More like what happened on the Sunday following the end of the American Civil War . It was Easter and women wore decorated bonnets to church to show their joy at having peace once more. (https://www.rivermuseum.com/ham-chronicles/posts/the-importance-of-an-easter-bonnet)
That one hat the lady was wearing had the whole garden on it. I bet it weighed a ton.ReplyDelete
Interesting information. I just keep thinking of the Bing Crosby movie with the song "In her Easter Bonnet" I'm site that's not the correct title, but you get the idea. He has risen!🌻⚘️
