Well if you like wearing a crown, today is right up your alley! The 24th of May was selected since it is Queen Victoria’s birthday and she wore a Tiara from 1837-1901. Barbara Bellisimo created this holiday in 2005 in order to promote “Seasons of Success”, a book designed to help young women. I am not sure how this applies or if they have to wear a Tiara or not, probably not. If you want to wear a Tiara that’s fine, just remember that because you do wear one doesn’t actually make you a queen.
How to celebrate – Proudly wear your Tiara today! See if you can find old “Queen For A Day” reruns. Read about Queen Victoria.
Every woman deserves to feel like a queen or princess. Apparently, Tiara Day is associated with Barbara Bellissimo’s Season of Success back in 2005. I guess the symbol of success for a woman is a Tiara 🙂 Never having worn one (being a guy), that I will own up to, I couldn’t say. But if it makes them feel like a success, then it is well worth it.
Even in our culture today, as in the photo and clip above from The Big Bang Theory, the Tiara is a symbol of a woman feeling beautiful. Of course in the comedy it’s sort of a geeky thing, but most geeky things have some ring of truth to them. I actually think a woman in a Tiara does stand out, and not in a bad way. Princess Diana nearly always wore a tiara and it looked classy on her.
However, she really was a Princess.
After 2005 the day faded into oblivion until Lynanne White of American Rose Bridal re-launched the day in 2008. In her effort to re-establish the day it became clear that perhaps this day was meant to be – it is the birthday of Queen Victoria who nearly always wore a tiara.
However, she really was a Queen.
But what the heck, if it makes a woman feel prettier then I’m all for it. I would however advise her not to wear it during a thunderstorm, when doing gymnastics or pole vaulting.

How to celebrate: Wear your tiara. If you don’t have one, get one. Make your husband, or boy friend, bow before you when he enters or leaves a room (but just for today :))
