Today’s Holiday: Mothering Sunday

Today’s Holiday:
Mothering Sunday

It was the custom in 17th-century England for Christians to pay their respects on the fourth Sunday in Lent to the “Mother Church” where they had been baptized. This day usually included a visit to one’s parents—to “go a-mothering,” as it was called back then. In the Roman Catholic Church and the Anglican Communion, the fourth Sunday in Lent is known as Laetare Sunday. The Introit of the Mass begins with the word “Rejoice” (laetare in Latin), marking a slight respite in the solemn Lenten season. Priests may wear rose-colored vestments to mass, instead of the usual purple for Lent. More…: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.tfd.mobile.TfdSearch

Article of the Day: The Chaperon

Article of the Day:
The Chaperon

The chaperon was a type of hood worn throughout Western Europe in the Middle Ages. It was especially fashionable in 15th-century Burgundy. The French verb chaperonner, meaning “to cover with a hood,” was derived from the name of the headgear and later came to mean “to protect.” Under the influence of the verb sense, the French noun chaperon came to mean “escort,” a meaning that was borrowed into English by the early 1700s. Why was Joan of Arc denounced for wearing a chaperon? More…: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.tfd.mobile.TfdSearch

Je suis une poupée de cire
Une poupée de son
Mon cœur est gravé dans mes chansons
Poupée de cire, poupée de son
Suis-je meilleure, suis-je pire
Qu’une poupée de salon?
Je vois la vie en rose bonbon
Poupée de cire, poupée de son

Mes disques sont un miroir
Dans lequel chacun peut me voir
Je suis partout à la fois
Brisée en mille éclats de voix
Autour de moi j’entends rire
Les poupées de chiffon
Celles qui dansent sur mes chansons
Poupée de cire, poupée de son
Elles se laissent séduire
Pour un oui, pour un non
L’amour n’est pas que dans les chansons
Poupée de cire, poupée de son
Mes disques sont un miroir
Dans lequel chacun peut me voir
Je suis partout à la fois
Brisée en mille éclats de voix
Seule parfois, je soupire
Je me dis à quoi bon
Chanter ainsi l’amour sans raison
Sans rien connaître des garçons
Je n’suis qu’une poupée de cire
Qu’une poupée de son
Sous le soleil de mes cheveux blonds
Poupée de cire, poupée de son
Mais un jour je vivrai mes chansons
Poupée de cire, poupée de son
Sans craindre la chaleur des garçons
Poupée de cire, poupée de son
