So, Holland, Michigan wrapped up the 90th anniversary of their "Tulip Time" festival yesterday.  They've been Klompen Dancing in the streets since 1929.  It all has to do with the tulips of course.  Back in the day they were going to have a Chrysanthemum festival, but no one knew how to spell Chrysanthemum so they gave it up.  Dad says that tulips are the third most popular flower, behind the Rose of course and the Carnation.  The little known Bastard Toadflax and Humped Bladderwort would be the worst flowers for a festival, and besides I don't even think you can get Bastard Toadflax this time of year.  Take on the day!!!
