Easter Bonnets

Easter Bonnets come from European traditions of wearing flowers on a hat to celebrate spring. It was developed over the years into a way of ladies celebrating Easter and of showing off to family and friends as to who had the best Bonnet!

The shops in 5th Avenue, in New York City, U.S.A., often have displays of Easter Bonnets in their windows. The shops compete to see who has the best display and the windows are a tourist attraction.
