Clothes.

Seriously, is this still a thing? We didn't pay much attention to it 50 years ago. I would think the whole "easter parade" thing would be a relic of a long dead past by now.

Yeah, my SO will figure out what shirt he is going to wear about 5 minutes before we need to walk out the door. I'm sure if I asked him now he would just respond by asking if we have to go to brunch with my family again this year.

I'm surprised more people aren't planning to wear "Easter Dresses"...is that not still much of a thing? The women in my family already have theirs picked out. It's a great day to get family pictures since generally everyone looks pretty nice.
I participate regularly in church, but in my tradition, which is a mainline protestant denomination, "Easter dresses" and the like are pretty confined to little kids. Same with dressy Christmas attire. Adults generally just wear whatever they'd typically wear.

But this does vary wildly within denominations and various religious cultures. My church is in the same neighborhood as a number of predominantly black congregations of Baptist churches and AME churches, and those congregants ordinarily traditionally dress up more for church in general (ladies in hats, handbags to match heels, etc.). They are also more likely to step up the fashion on Easter. It's culturally traditional, less so where I am. Party dresses with Easter bonnets, and little suits with springlike pas tel accents are more confined to little girls and boys, and aren't even ubiquitous then.

The same as I wear every other day.
I do not believe Jesus is impressed by what I wear.

To be honest, I have been mildly curious about whether it is still considered the norm to dress up for holidays. With Easter, for instance, it was always a big deal to "dress" for the day. At least when I was younger. So I would be interested to know if people still dress up, or is it the same clothes that you normally wear.

Having said that, it does seem a little over the top for a poster to describe the clothes he will be wearing, especially the name of the colors involved and the specific brand. Its kind of weird and a little annoying imho to always be reading about the particular brand.

For the purpose of the thread, it seems like it would be sufficient to comment that yes, I will be wearing a new suit and tie. Or I have a great new light green dress that I am looking forward to wearing.

If it's a bit cool, I'll wear my kelly green Talbot's sweater with little rhinestone anchors all over the front. If it's quite warm, I may wear a navy and white knit top I recently bought. Both with navy pants.

Cultural norm, still, in certain circles (I mentioned some in my earlier post). Overall? Not as typical, anymore, particularly in a mostly secular, fairly casual society. So, it really varies.
