What Makes Britain Great, Part VII

Cagoules

What? I swear if there hadn’t been a photograph accompanying this word… I never would’ve guessed what they are.

Here in the US we call them ponchos.

The description by the Independent made me giggle:

These waterproof coats are an essential for anyone planning a day out in Britain. Whether you own a £200 designer version or one that folds up into itself and comes from the pound shop, you should carry your cagoule with you on any walk or visit to a theme park or beach.

Married couples in Britain are required by law to wear matching cagoules and these should be worn with matching jumpers if at all possible. Bridal cagoules are available for summer weddings and two-person models are available for the dogging community.
