It’s nice to have choices. Today we either celebrate tweed, the fabric, originating in Scotland that is popular in the north (Cause it’s just t hot to wear in the south) Or we can celebrate NYC’s famed mobster “Boss Tweed” who was born on April 3rd, 1823. He served as a U.S. House of Representatives and as a NY State Senator as well as serving himself in every corrupt form of government one can imagine! It’s your choice, maybe you can combine them though. Since Tweed lived in a northern climate, maybe he wore tweed! So this could then be Tweed wearing Tweed Day! It makes as much sense as a lot of the days do!?!
How to celebrate – Wear a tweed outfit today. Study “Boss Tweed” and his reign of terror. Visit Scotland!
