More plausibly, writes Elizabeth White Nelson, the tradition of expressing love on Valentine’s Day comes from the Roman festival of Lupercalia, a fertility rite held on February 15. Typically, the medieval church would try to combine saints’ feast days with pagan festivals, to boost Church loyalty and participation.

It is a ceremony,.. to draw Lots, which they term Valentines… The names of a select number of one Sex, are by an equal Number of the other put into some Vessel; and, after that, everyone draws a Name, which for the present is called their Valentine, and is also looked upon as good Omen of their Man and Wife afterwards.

Sexy Valentine’s Day Costumes

Sexy Valentine’s Day Costumes

Originally, the feast day of St. Valentine honored two third century martyrs by the name of Valentine who were elevated to sainthood in the early middle ages. Dismayed defenders of the faith felt that the penny post valentine cheapened affection, and joked that many a postal carrier was crushed under his bag of cheaply-produced letters strewn with cooing birds and hearts.

To manage the paradox that a generic, mass-produced valentine was being asked to convey a heartfelt, singular emotion, a whole new business emerged of “valentine writer books.” These books provided verses that could be copied into a valentine and presented as the sender’s own words, and unique creation.

So, all you cranks and cynics take heart: Valentine’s Day had a decidedly unromantic genesis, and even after the holiday got alloyed to romantic love, it had its own subversive, cynical undertow right from the start, whether it be the riots and effigies of failed love, the charivari mockery valentines, or the valentine writer’s plagiary book to achieve “authentic” expression.

 

In addition to plus size Valentines Day costumes you will also find that the costume companies also have Valentine’s Day decorations for your home, car, dorm room, office and even a car. It’s quite romantic to go out to your car and see a Valentine’s Day decoration on the windshield (just be sure to sign it so that she/he knows that it’s from you.).

St. Valentine’s and Costumes

Wearing costumes is a romantic way to express your affection for your significant other on Valentines Day. Before his death sentence was carried out, Valentine wrote a farewell message to his beloved, which he concluded with the inscription, “from your Valentine.” Years later by Church decree, Valentine was named the Patron Saint of Love.

Retailers around the world push traditional gifts such as heart shaped chocolates, cards, flowers and jewelry, but what women really want often times gets blurred out from all the marketing that goes on before Valentines Day.

2013…2014…2015 New Years Eve Costumes

Dec
Comments Off |  Posted by |  Category:Seasonal Costumes

201320142015images (1)

And yet another countdown.  This time to the end of 2013 or the beginning of 2014, whichever you prefer. We’ll talk about the cleaning and storage of Santa in a few days; but in the meantime, we have another masked ball to go to on December 31.  

 

Gone are the heydays of the Night Clubs and Supper Clubs and their  formality of wearing tie and tails, top hat and cane, black and white, formal dress ware. Although much more informal in this new century, there are still a few costumed parties.  But it might be a little more difficult to dress in costume than at Halloween, where anything is fair game. For New Years Eve starters, there are the robed Father Times, and diapered Baby New Year costumes.  A long white wig and beard, similar to Santas might be in order, but the scythe might be a bit dangerous to the other party goer’s. What happened in 2013 (events and celebrities as in who died and who did what) might be starting points for your costume; and politicians are always fair game.

Costume above is available at Buycostumes.com,

Or maybe, just wear the glitz and glittered shiny cardboard hat, and have a blowtickler (aka snake blowout) handy to make a little noise at midnight.   Have fun, because in the next few days is the beginning of a new year.

For the Newbie Santa….A Few Last Minute Tips…

Dec

For the Newbie Santa….A Few Last Minute Tips…

Your suit is ready. Your belt, boot tops, glasses and gloves are lined up, and show time is very soon.

Some children love to sit on Santa’s lap and chatter about how good they’ve been and what they want for Christmas.  Then there are those children, who love Santa from across the room or at a distance, but want nothing to do with him at a close up range. 

Don’t take it personally.  It’s not you.  It’s your persona.

 

And what to do about those little guys who want to tug on your beard to see if it’s real or those looking for clues as to who you really are.  From my experience, I never really let them get an angle on me where they could try to tug a beard, or look for any telltales signs that might provide them with a clue that you are not really Santa.  I sit them on my lap facing a little bit away from me, and a little more towards the audience (family, parents, whatever).  They then have to turn their face a little to the rear to see me, but their body is angled away from me so as to prevent those grabs and deeper glances. If you are a newbie, and concerned about the forthcoming interaction, your questions are probably less about the suit, and more about THE conversation.  And conversing with a 4 year old is always interesting to say the least. 

After plopping the child on my lap, I ask the usual questions such as ‘Were you a good little girl or boy?’, and ‘What would you like Santa to bring you?’ and offer a little advice on a few of their shortcomings (as provided by Mom or Dad). I might speak of my home at the North Pole or about Mrs. Santa or the Elves or the reindeer.  My needing to feed my reindeer or needing to see other children was always my exit line.

As to how to field the children’s questions?  Out of the mouths of babes come the least expected questions.  Either answer the question with a simple answer, or dazzle them with your intellect (G).  Basically brother, you’re on your own on this one.

How long should you hold the child?  Sometimes it seems like an eternity, and I’ve never been timed, but I would guess the average child is on my lap for only a couple of minutes.

Lastly, beware the Santa challenged child, though, for they might dampen thy suit.

Hmmm, maybe a backup pair of pants just in case.

We nearly forgot…the Elves

We nearly forgot…..the Elves

We nearly forgot the elf costumes, or elves as they would be in plural.  Elf costumes would probably not be used at a home party because most home parties only feature Santa.  However if your local church, or union or office is sponsoring a Christmas party, it may come replete with a cast of characters such as Mrs. Santa, Santa Belles, a reindeer or two and a snowman.   Elves (sounds like Elvis, doesn’t it?) might be in abundance as well.

Of all the costumes, the Elf is the easiest and by far the most comfortable.  With a little imagination, you might be able to construct one at home; as all it requires is a pair of tights (well, you might not have tights at home), a tunic, hat, cord, and something to cover the shoes.  

OK, maybe this post is a little late for this year, but you might consider this for your various parties next year. Make a note.
