Hmmm...I don't believe they were offended. It was Christmas. And they were wearing red. There's no offense in that.
However, at that time, it wasn't ridiculous looking. And what was in style is what was sold and what was worn. We didn't have a choice. I think fashions changed more in the past than they do now. And we have more choices now.
"To buy or not to buy, that is the question." (My apologies to Shakespeare) Seriously, the fashion industry does NOT aim its sales campaigns at women over 65 years of age.
I was there Lynn. You weren't. Believe me, they were offended. However, they all knew the Pastor was kidding, so the offense didn't last long.
As best I can understand it, fashion trends tend to follow a pattern, and have, since way before my time...Here's something I've noticed. Many women who work in the local Stop & Shop supermarket, and the nearby bagel shop, have a lot of tattoos, on their arms, legs, necks, etc. Has that now become a general fashion? If it has, they won't be as easy to remove as garments, when they go out of style.
