“In my Easter Bonnet”



Easter…….do you remember spring coats?    Each spring, it was time to get a new spring coat.   I haven’t heard that expression in quite a number of decades.   I, myself, never got spring coats for my own daughters.   In fact, the last time I remember getting them
Easter outfits was when they were very small,  the youngest in kindergarten.   I think I still have those outfits ……..they matched.   A white jacket top over a black pleated skirt with a red flower corsage.   Not exactly Easter colors, but ……..at least, they didn’t get bonnets.

I left the world of spring coats and Easter bonnets far behind me by then.   I had enough trauma from Easter pageants at my own elementary school, where we paraded our handmade Easter bonnets on the auditorium stage.   Mine had artificial flowers……not the kind Michael’s sells now, I am sure.   Mine were the ugly, plastic kind  (I have blocked them from my memory) melted in one plastic blur……….

I do remember the fuzzy chicks on pipe cleaners that emerged from glittery half egg shells…those were nice……not on my head, but nice……….  🙂

I guess everyone else looked as stupid as I did……..and I bet not many of them dressed their girls in Easter bonnets after that……..

I don’t dress up for Easter…….when my children were young, we went to Church.   It was more parish fashion day than celebration of Christ’s rising from the dead.

But I admit, I have dressed up my dogs in Easter bonnets……….I leave that for mental analysis   🙂
