Perhaps the concept behind Sadie Hawkins Day sounded so silly because it originated with a comic strip. The pseudo-holiday is named after the so-called “homeliest gal in all them hills” in Al Capp’s Li’l Abner comic strip. The story goes that Sadie’s dad Hekzebiah Hawkins, a prominent resident of Dogpatch, was so concerned that his homely but speedy daughter would become a spinster that he declared Sadie Hawkins Day, when unmarried women literally chase after the town’s bachelors. The comic strip was first published on November 15, 1937 and was never meant to become an annual event. But in just a few years, the day took on a life of its own.

As the holiday became an empowering rite for women across the country, the comic strip’s protagonist Li’l Abner spent nearly two decades outracing his pursuer Daisy Mae on the annual Sadie Hawkins Day until finally marrying her in 1952.

In the United States and Canada, the Sadie Hawkins Dance is a usually informal dance sponsored by a high school, middle school or college, in which female students invite male students.

As a parent of a home schooler – do you worry your child is missing some of these high school events ?  Many parents choose to join Co- Ops or Groups because of this reason. Our on line school does a JR/SR prom , a 9th grade trip , & a Graduation event for students to attend. Bringing a touch of the Brick & Mort er school to the vertical community. Or do your kids attend dances at the local school if asked?

 

Future of the Event :

Maybe Now we should just celebrate strong women & choices we now have, Since it’s no longer Taboo  for women to ask men on a date. It  maybe another custom to go on the wayside.  It’s something to think about !  Lisa
