It's Homecoming Season in many schools across the Country. Events such as a Banquet and a Football game, along with a Parade with the School's Marching Band playing after the King and Queen are announced for the big dance take place. Throughout the week leading up to the big Game and dance, Spirit Days may be celebrated, where students dress up to a theme.
Another Tradition (typically in Texas,) homecoming dates exchange mums and garters on the day of the game and dance. These are very elaborate corsages or garters that are made up of very large flowers, usually the bigger the better.
How does your (or your child's) school celebrate homecoming? Maybe you were the queen?
