Black is a fine color for a grown woman to wear, but it's not a color for a little girl to wear, IMHO.

I agree that we have lost our sense of the liturgical year, and how to incorporate that into what we actually do, for Easter, Christmas, etc.

Spring cleaning is actually supposed to be done as a preparation for Christs rising from the dead.....we make out lives "anew". This includes our clothes. So if you can't afford new clothes. You clean up your old ones and shine shoes. My grandmother used to talk about how they would spend the entire day before getting themselves and their clothes ready for Easter. I still try to buy a new dress or skirt for Easter. Or at least reserve one for Easter. That's where the custom comes for not wearing white until Easter....because it's a sign of newness and purity.

Customs are certainly interesting. Spring cleaning before Easter Sunday sounds great. Unfortunately, with all the other preparations for Easter (shopping, cooking, lenten events and services) who has time to also do in depth cleaning.

Last night I was in mass and noticed two little girls who were wearing black floral print dresses. I feel sad because so many persons think black is a color and seem to think it is wearable on Easter Sunday. Some adults and their mom was wearing black in her ourtfit too.

These children will never know the beautiful dresses we girls grew up wearing that were made of beautiful fabrics and that have colors like light yellow, light blue, pink chiffon, and other beautiful linens and so on. OK maybe theyr will, but not like some of us from an earlier time did.

I can't believe how black is in so many boldly colored outfits and seems to be fashionable for many people. I will always love ditsy prints(small florals) and pastels in spring. I wore a light yellow top with a light pastel paisley skirt. I did nto buy it for the easter holiday, I already had it but I just wish some of the most feminine clothes would make a full comeback. I know some are trying to return.


There is a lot more feminine dresses that are back, now that I think about it- but I can't wrap my mind around dressing a child in black, even if there are flowers on the fabric.

Maybe they are preping to be nuns!


(Just kidding Marian)! Black might be a generation thing. Their parents might be around my age or younger. Since a teen I have always worn a lot of black, back when wearing black was considered an outrage. I don't know. I feel comfortable in black. Maybe it hides cool-aid spills?
