Ah, th' merry Renaissance Faire is approaching as some may be aware, at least to our town, and I always make it a tradition to attend every year. I never cease to enforce the policy upon my family of wearing the appropriate attire for such a rare occasion meaning we must wear period costumes! If I could, I'd make it a law that one must come in Renaissance clothing to the Renaissance faire for it merely makes sense to do so. I try to take every opportunity and excuse I possibly can to dress…
