I Could Write a Sonnet (or at Least a Blog Post)

Tomorrow is Easter Sunday, and this New Yorker is looking forward to the annual New York City Easter Parade. The custom started out in the mid 19th Century as a “Sunday stroll." Wealthy New Yorkers would leave their houses of worship after church on Sunday to walk down Fifth Avenue and show off their fashionable dress. The promenade became particularly popular on Easter Sunday. Immortalized in song by Judy Garland in the movie Easter Parade, the procession is a display of fantastical creativity, humor, exuberance and whimsy. The hats are amazing as are the New Yorkers who wear them! Here are some pictures from last year’s parade.
