Ah, Those Headcoverings

". . . let’s hear it for the veil/bonnet/headscarf. A symbol of old fashioned values, one’s cultural heritage, and a way to live green."

"Sunbonnets, Headscarves and Hijabs: The latest Green Trend?"
Posted on July 16th, 2008, by Nancy Reyes in (check out the labels this article falls under in the BloggerNewsNetwork:) All News, Archeology & Antiquities News, Breaking News, Environmental News, Humor, Religious News, Society and Culture. Nancy Reyes is a retired physician living in the rural Philippines. Her website is Finest Kind Clinic and Fishmarket.

In the above article, the author mentions "coffee Catholic," who posted this similarly veined article: "Headscarves... an interesting adventure!" Here, read from a Christian perspective how interesting the variety of headcoverings are, and how sometimes they are linked to a certain belief or culture, but inevitably, practical as well as lovely and important. Also check this article for photos and links to sites that sell various head coverings.
