« on: September 10, 2003, 02:52:28 PM »
Aside from not exactly knowing about the feast of the Exaltation of the Precious and Life-giving Cross: icon seen here:

http://www.oca.org/pages/dwp/large.asp?saintid=102610

can anyone tell me what the two guys in the front are wearing, because to me they look like paper hats   ::)

But of course, I'm much less learned than you all  ;)

thanks!

To me they looked more like the paper sailboats we used to fold when we were little to float in puddles.  However, I'm sure their some kinda traditional hats, made outta something other than paper.  Perhaps if there's an expert in the milner arts, they can enlighten us.   :D

Now where were we? Oh yeah - the important thing was I had an onion on my belt, which was the style at the time. They didn’t have white onions because of the war. The only thing you could get was those big yellow ones...
