411 Fath's Fun Fact Fridays

We're talking about fun things to do as a youth staff, and croquet was mentioned. It put me on a kick to learn a little bit more about the history of the game.

Did you know...
...that croquet is thought to have originated in Ireland, moving then to England, then as it died out in England quickly caught on to east-coast hoity toities in the United States?

We're going to dress up like this when we go to play. :)

To really experience the full magnitude of croquet, you must play in full corset on a hot and humid day so that all the ladies can make good use of the fainting couches.
