Fashionable Friday: Secret Societies

Secret Societies have always existed. Groups were formed with a similar goal or passion. Sometimes their interests ran counter to the rest of society so they met in secret but sometimes they were created to eat, drink and have fun.

There is a fascination with the symbols, hierarchy and culture that emerged from these groups and has been maintained for centuries in some of these societies like the Freemasons, Shriners and such.

Whether real or fictional, secret societies continue to fascinate. Have you ever joined a club, secret society or organization that had special insignia? Are you a member of the infamous Black Pen Society or a recent member of the Karas Pen Club? Or maybe you follow W.C. Fields belief that “I refuse to join any club that would have me as a member”?
