The Corset

A corset is a garment worn to mold the torso into a certain shape for orthopedic reasons or, more commonly, to shrink the waist and exaggerate the bust for aesthetic reasons. It dates to at least 2000 BCE, when it was worn as an outer garment in Minoan Crete. By the 16th century, it had become a tight inner bodice stiffened with whalebone, wood, or steel. After some 4,000 years of use, corsets largely fell out of fashion in the 1920s. What is the record for smallest corseted waist size? More... Discuss

Walpurgis Night

People who lived in the Harz Mountains of Germany believed for many centuries that witches rode across the sky on the eve of St. Walpurga's Day to hold a coven on Brocken Mountain. To frighten them off, people rang church bells, banged pots and pans, and lit torches topped with hemlock, rosemary, and juniper. The legend of Walpurgis Night is still celebrated in Germany, Austria, and Scandinavia with bonfires and other festivities designed to welcome spring by warding off demons, disaster, and darkness. St. Walpurga is the patron saint associated with protection against magic. More... Discuss
