No need to be really named Catherine to wear the hat of Sainte Catherine « coiffer le chapeau de Sainte Catherine » and be named a “Catherinette” today, November 25th
Maybe you will cross over some of them in the metro or on the street ? This lovely French tradition seems to come back, and I was surprised of seeing some beautiful hats last year on this date !
More and more “Catherinettes”, contraction of « Catherine » and « fillette« , who are no more very young (over 25 years) and still unmarried … on November 25th… a very common fact nowadays !
« Holly Catherine, can you help us ? »
« But with such a head », what can I do for you ? »
