Yesterday should of been our Easter Bonnet Parade at work. Except the boiler broke in the school building and so the children were told not to come in - I was actually really looking forward to seeing them all in there bonnets - the children that did turn up and bring there hats looked fantastic!!
Not sure but it shows off my dress so I left it :D
Easter Bonnet Parades originally stemmed from the Palm Sunday walk as Jesus walked to Jerusalem - and in years to come Easter Parades took place before the Easter Sunday service at church!
I used to have a great time making my Easter Bonnets for the parade when I was younger - I won twice!! (See below) and won an Easter egg and a basket of fruit for my troubles ;P
I used to love the whole tradition of the march, with the band. carrying the flags and the people waving as we walked - it's not something you get to see as often now - well here in the UK anyway.
Wow I would still wear that checked skirt and those blue tights if I could, maybe not my brownie uniform - haha
Oh and once a poser always a poser!!;P
