Maggie's Papal Wardrobe Lesson for the day

Now, just so those of you who aren't in the know, don't go thinking B16 went all Santa for the holidays, have you ever heard of a Camauro? That would be the natty hat that B16 is sporting in this Reuters News Service picture (Vatican December 21, 2005. REUTERS/Alessia Pierdomenico)

This is an old traditional papal garment. It hasn't been worn in a while, but I must say he looks resplendent in it.

What do you suppose we will be seeing next? I for one can't wait to find out.


Thanks to Rocco at Whispers in the Loggia for the heads up, pardon the pun on this one.

Bet it kept his head warm, and since he has been still having outdoor audiences because the crowds are so large he needs all the protection from the elements he can get.

being from St. Louis, I love the red...plus he looks a little like St. Nick, doesn't he.
Popes can wear some cool hats, and get away with it...I envy them for that.
Merry Christmas!
