Peacock: noun. A vain person, or dandy.
Did you know that the peafowl is a pheasant (of the genus Pavo)? Who knew!? Although typically referred to as peacocks, technically only the male is the peacock and the female is called a peahen. (Yes, the babies are peachicks...too cute) A group of peafowl is known as a party. When somebody says "peacock", you probably instantly think of one of these haughty guys. Have you ever seen a white peacock? This is one gorgeous bird!! Shhh...don't tell him he's white...I don't think he knows for his ostentacious demeanor!
Peacocks were a symbol of vanity and pride in medieval times; recently, they have become a symbol of bad luck, particularly their feathers. I heart Google and National Geographic!!
Thank you! Thank you for all your kind words about the Hollyday Monkey socks and more! Blush! I'm touched and left speechless....until tomorrow, then.
