The mums looked good even if I think they are silly. Bear's date wore her mum to school that day. The two wore them for pictures and then left them behind when they headed to the game.

I won't even begin to pretend to understand this crazy tradition of mums that is so big in Texas. The school kids make each other or themselves creations that include a mum. They add ribbons, teddy bears, symbols and anything else one can add to that. They look crazy and usually include personalized items. Bear was invited to homecoming for the local public school. Meaning he was asked to escort a girl to the dance on Saturday night but also to the football game on Friday night. Goobers helped him make a mum for the young lady and she made one for Bear. The tradition is to wear the mum to school on the day of the game.
