Welcome to Everything Croton, a collection of all things Croton--our history, our homes, our issues, our businesses, our schools--in short, EVERYTHING CROTON.
It's a real treat when residents send Everything Croton "vintage" village clippings to share with you all--and of course copies are always sent to the historical society.
Today we found this in our mailbox: FROM JANUARY 1971-"ROCK DAY" TRADITION OBSERVED AT THE NIDDY NODDY; for those who don't know, the NIDDY NODDY was a shop here in the village that specialized in knitting and related arts. "ROCK DAY" A.K.A. ROC DAY IS ALSO KNOWN AS ST. DISTAFF DAY...
THE ARTICLE READS: ROCKDAY, A TRADITION OBSERVED BY WOMEN IN MEDIEVAL EUROPE AND COLONIAL AMERICA WHICH WAS REVIVED SIX YEARS AGO BY IRENE MILLER, OWNER OF THE NIDDY NODDY, A CROTON YARN AND NEEDLEWORK SHOP, WAS HELD AGAIN AT THE SHOP ON OLD POST ROAD.
