Postby uncronopio » Tue Mar 21, 2006 11:12 pm

Graduation time is coming in Christchurch, and one needs to wear the appropriate regalia:
pl.n. (used with a sing. or pl. verb)

1. The emblems and symbols of royalty, such as the crown and scepter.
2. The rights and privileges of royalty.
3. The distinguishing symbols of a rank, office, order, or society.
4. Magnificent attire; finery.

[Medieval Latin rēgālia, from Latin, neuter pl. of rēgālis, regal


An explanation on how to wear this thing.
