9.20.13 … I love Texans, but I learned: don’t mess with Texans! (And I don’t get the mum thing) :) …

Texans, mums, high school:  Don’t mess with Texans!   I made fun of a friend who posted a picture of their daughter with the homecoming mum thing … they did not understand why it was so funny to me.

I don’t know exactly how the Mum thing started in Texas, but it’s definitely a big deal. So big in fact that there are folks who call themselves professional Mum makers in a lot of Texas towns and mum making supplies at stores all over our state.

Status in High Schools in Texas is based on how big of a mum you got. It’s a fact. The bigger and crazier the better. Heck, there are some that have flashing lights and make sounds!

4. You can’t believe that people outside of Texas don’t do the mum/corsage thing

I remember the first time I found out that people in other states didn’t do the Homecoming Mum thing I was floored. I grew up assuming that everyone did it. The truth is, it’s basically just a Texas thing. In fact, there are people that have moved here from out of state and are still baffled by it. Crazy right?

A few comments from Texas friends …

I have been here TEN years now…. and I can say for sure that TEXAS IS A STATE OF MIND! LOL

 I was glad that my girls thought the mums were pretty awful when they were in Texas high schools!
