It is cold today. I do love to spring new words on my husband. Apparently, they don't know what a boggan is in New York. We do cheat a little on that one. It is a shortened form of the actual word, but I consider it completely Southern. I had an uncle who wore a boggan whether it was 100 degrees or 40 below. My husband says they just call it a knit hat. I will have to confirm that with his sister, as he has no memories unless he asks her about it. You see a lot of musicians wearing a boggan these days. I doubt they call it that, but it is still that whether it has that little ball on the top or not. I guess boggan came from toboggan hat, although I'm not sure Southerners really talk about toboggans much. We didn't have sleds. We had cardboard, garbage can lids, and jon boats (if you wanted the family to sled together). Anyway, get out your boggans and get ready for the cold weather. It is here today.
