Whitsuntide

52 Weeks of Personal Genealogy & History – Spring

This is the 14th challenge in a weekly series from GeneaBloggers called 52 weeks of personal genealogy and  history, suggested  by Amy Coffin,  that invite genealogists to record memories and insights about their own lives for future descendants.  Week 14 – Spring

I really don’t have much to say about the topic of Spring. It doesn’t hold any particular special or romantic memories – childhood or otherwise.

I guess that if there is one thing that sticks in my mind it is about the tradition in our family of getting new clothes for Whitsuntide. Here I am in my new blazer and probably everything else was new as well.  This picture is taken outside the home of my grandma and granddad in Leeds, England. I was glad when my brother and sister came along because I didn’t have to suffer this trial on my own.

 

Was this a tradition for anyone else?
