Winter Formal December 31 2015, 0 Comments


November and December is the time of year where young girls and boys prepare themselves for their Winter Formal dance.  However, very few know where the tradition of Winter Formal began.

It all started with a comic strip, where there was a designated date in November when unmarried women would chase down prospective bachelors in their hometowns-in hopes of marrying them.

In the story the character Sadie Hawkins was most dreaded by the town's bachelors! Which this event would usually take place a Saturday after November. This lead to the coordination of attires, and the boys asking girls out to their winter dance(s).
