New York Easter Parade
The wearing of a fancy new hat on Easter Sunday
is traditional in Christianity. Lent, the forty days of abstinence before Easter Sunday, is rewarded by feasts and the indulgence
of new outfits. It is an old tradition. A 15th Century Almanac states that ‘if on Easter Sunday some part of ones outfit is not new, they will not enjoy good luck during the year’
Today, the custom of wearing an elaborate hat on Easter Sunday can still be seen. New York’s Easter Parade on 5th Avenue can rival any day at the Ascots. On Easter Sunday the churches are full to the brim (pun intended!) of ladies in their finest and widest feathered and floral pieces.
At Edie Hats and Tart Boutique we celebrate this tradition with gusto! Pop by to dress up in our finery and take part in our annual Chocolate Easter egg hunt!
