Homecoming week is a week of fun and dressing up. One of the days many people are excited about is Hippy Day. Many people think hippies dress like they’re from the seventies, and while tie-dye is very popular among hippies, not many of them wear it. In actuality, hippies dress mostly in what they feel is comfortable. Some look like normal teenagers and other look like they climbed out of a dumpster.

Still, for something distinctive on homecoming hippy day, you might want to throw on some tie-dye, a headband, bell-bottoms, and some groovy looking shades. Forget about the negative and stereotypical sides of hippies such as poor hygiene, drug abuse, and violence. Instead, don’t be afraid to show your school spirit on Monday September 21!
