In your Easter bonnet, with all the frills upon it You'll be the grandest lady in the Easter parade...

~Easter Parade

 

The New York City Easter Parade dates back to the mid-1800's when the social elite would attend church services then parade their fashions down Fifth Avenue. It was a combination of religion and haute couture. Today the fashions are more fanciful with bonnets of real flowers and pet pooches dressed in the latest doggie wear. Irving Berlin memorialized the event with his song, "In your Easter bonnet, with all the frills upon it, you'll be the grandest lady in the Easter Parade."

 

Happy Easter and a blessed day to all...
