it was a tradition in France, when a girl have 25 years and not married she put on her head (the 25 november for the sT Catherine) a funny (or stupid)hat most time yellow and green(maybe help to find a husband) that's call : "coiffer Sainte Catherine"that also celebrate in the" maison de haute couture" and "modistes"

Ahhh, OK, now I understand. Although I think it's just cruel to point out that you are a spinster by wearing a silly hat. Is St Catherine the patron saint of marriage?

that was a martyr circa 4
century ,she refuse to married emperor Maxence so he torture and kill her , she is the saintly patron of the virgin girl after it come to celebrate the girl of 25 years not married that's supposed to give her chance to find a man in the year (sorry for terrible English)
