Post sad anniversary
Hi folks!
As many of you know well, 215 years ago, like today, our beloved Marie Antoinette faced trial, and tomorrow, October 16th, is the anniversary of her execution. :cry:

I just wanted to take a few minute to remember her...


And I'd also like to ask you if you know about some way of honouring her memory. I remember reading about people who wear a red lace around their neck on this day, but I'm not sure...

Hello. Here in Australia, it is already the 16th...I am honouring her by completely dressing in white, as that is what she wore on this terrible, terrible day 215 years ago...
I am in mourning to honour her soul..
May God bless her...the greatest Queen that ever lived..
R.I.P :cry:

Yes, it is already the anniversary here today...I am tempted to wear the red ribbon around the neck but I think it might be a bit macabre! Instead I shall listen to some of her favourite music, drink Vienna coffee and think of her wonderful life. She is truly our beloved Queen always in our hearts. :love:

I shall drape her portrait in a scrap of white lace and keep a candle burning for her all day.

I'll probably wear all white and a red velvet ribbon around my neck.

I'll try to sport a white dress and a red ribbon around my neck tomorrow even though it will be belated except I don't think I have any white dress or ribbon. So I'll pray for Antoinette. If I were in her place I would not even have a quarter of the dignity she had. Poor Antoinette. :(

It's touching to hear how you all remember her tenderly...

In the end, as I didn't have a red ribbon, I wore a coral necklace, which made a similar effect. But above all I'll pray for her tonight. May she rest in peace and find the happiness she couldn't enjoy on earth.
