Of Estonia: Ceremonial Pot Holders

This is the best picture we managed of what can only be described as the ancient Estonian art form of pot-holder quilting. I didn't really understand this one. In any case, the parade was fun, and it seemed most of the participants were having a grand time marching out to the song festival grounds. I hope that in the unlikely event that any Estonian ever reads this blog, they do not take offense -- I'm merely pointing out that one element of the cultural richness of our world is that in Greeley, Colorado, we don't carry ceremonial pot-holders in our parades, while other parts of the world - and maybe even America - choose to do so.
