Charming Custom

The Dutch have such charming customs! I saw a book bag hanging from a flagpole and thought to myself, that was a cruel practical joke! But then I kept seeing them - so I had to find out why so many back packs were on flag poles! Turns out it is a custom when a youth graduates from High School to hang their backpack from a flagpole!

Oh - I think it is such a lovely custom. How nice to "honor" your kids when they graduate with that notice to all the folks who go by.

Are you getting ready for your Move?
