The Pearling Tradition
I had received a message for the newsletter
from a collegian congratulating her sister on her "pearling". I had never heard of such
a thing...so I wrote to her. Good thing I did...many other sisters didn't know this tradition either!
Here's her reply:
From: Jen Johnson
well, if you have a boyfriend that is not greek, he cannot lavalier you
(give you his letters) so we have it so that if he wants to do the
equivilant then he gives you a pearl...
and Dana received this beautiful pearl necklace for Christmas!
We had a candle pass after our first meeting back for her. The candle goes around twice, same as a lavaliering!
It was a lot of fun,
especially since I knew who it was going to be and I decorated the candle
special for Dana!
It's kinda cool to find out what other chapters do... :)
love in AOT,
