Why Can't You Wear White After Labor Day?

Today during nonchalant conversation with the newbies at my school, someone jokingly mention "So, um.. tonight I have to get rid of all of my white shorts, shirts, etc.. etc.. yatyy yatyy." Everyone has their own theory of why this rule of not wearing white after Labor Day came to be but really, they know nothing about everything. Why Labor Day and not Christmas or Halloween? Well Labor Day was established in the mid-1800's, the time of money and wide spread wealth. It was gradually becoming harder and harder to differentiate between Old Money, New Money, and people who just happened to find a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. So to make things easier, women, yes... *sigh*.. I think it was women who started this. Who would even fathom the thought of a man being this precocious about fashion statements? LOL .. Anyway, women came up with a bajillion rules and regulations for women who were currently in well known families and knew the "IN" crowd. This way, if a women walked into an exclusive event wearing an amazing dress and looked like a "bag of money" BUT the type of collar she wore was wrong for the season.. Everyone knew not to even pay her any attention and just go on pursuing their endeavors for the evening. Cruel, isn't it! (SMH)
