|Carola and I, in our Dirndls - traditional Bavarian dresses.|
The way you tie these aprons, as I quickly found out, says a lot according to Bavarian tradition. I was trying on different Dirndls at the store and at one point came out of the dressing room, with my apron tied behind my back, like one would normally do with something like that. And as soon as Carola saw this she was like - "You don't want to tie it like that! That means you're a widow!" Apparently you only tie the apron behind your back if you're a widow, and if you single you tie it to your left side, but if you're in a relationship you tie to the right side. It's amazing how something so small could have so much meaning behind it!
|In the "Tent" - not the little white tent I had pictured in my mind! lol!|
