21 Vintage Photos Of Nuns Letting Their Habits Down
Nuns live under vows of poverty, chastity, and obedience so it's not uncommon for us to see them always prim and proper. As someone who went to a Catholic school, I'd often see them with their hands tucked neatly in their habits. Sometimes, I'd see a smile on their faces. Oftentimes, just a head bowed down. Their aura commands respect, which was almost too easy to fear by someone who isn't supposed to wear a necklace to school.
I remember wondering whether they would sometimes step out of the nun zone and just go have fun. And what do they do for fun? Do they go crazy on the piano after class? I honestly had no idea. Not until this collection of vintage photographs came along. These 21 old-timey photos show sisters letting their habits down, like you've never seen them before.
