Catholic Culture: Easter Bonnet

Mum sometimes said in her youth Catholic ladies would save up and buy themselves a nice new hat for Easter.  Then came the hippies.  It's a nice tradition.  Spring is here! 


  1. Don't blame the hippies for the decline in Easter Bonnets and women no longer wearing hats to church. Blame Vatican II.

  2. Yes and no. The hats were already on their way out. Then came the sexual revolution. Hats are still enormously out of fashion, except in London at certain social events.
