Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
And, as you've been saying, stormy, it's our symbol.

When I walk into work tomorrow, most of the mothers dropping off their children will be wearing scarves.

Some will have them thrown on. Some will have them pinned carefully around their face to hide every scrap of hair. Others will be wrapped up in gorgeous Kashmiri shawls in lieu of a coat.  

But if it snows overnight, in the morning, many will still totter through the slush in sparkly, strappy, high heeled open sandals.

In other words, there's more than one difference in cultural dress code. But we have chosen to make a symbol of the scarf...and it's a non-issue.  Like shoes.
