Default Two questions about English customs:

1) Where do all the costumed men who participate in such ceremonies as "The Royal Order of the Garter" come from? Are they in the military?

2) Why do English people wear Wellies even on sunny days?

TIA

1) no idea, I'm sure google will explain. Please post links.

2) it's Britain. It will rain at some point. I really don't know and have often wondered that myself.

1) I think (but I'm really not sure) that there either from nobility or from the military ( haven't had chance to read but this may help http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Order_of_the_Garter )

2) because it never stops raining. Ever....and because they look awesome! Its was a big trend in my part of England to wear Wellies everydays among the teenage folk...indeed me and my friends bought the cutest patterned Wellies and wore them religiously for months

Are Wellies Rainboots?

If so I love rain boots! I love when it rains so I can wear mine!
