I am unsure whether so many people in my life have an affinity for owls because the various schools I’m associated with have owls as their mascots, or because owls are just cool. Help.
Are they newly popular? I bought my best friend porcelain owl measuring cups for her birthday…which is the same present she bought me (her birthday is in July, which is when we realized this. Much laughter followed.), but our college’s mascot is the owl. A bunch of teachers at school used owls as their classroom theme…but our mascot is the owl.
If this is just a random surge in popularity…why owls? Why not, say, seahorses?

I held some owls yesterday. They’re way cooler than seahorses.

peachacid: It’s not random at all. The manufacturers need to keep pushing something new so they get new buyers. Owls have been increasing in popularity since 2009, but they wil be replaced by something else soon.

julies1949: Like seahorses? I bought fabric similar to this over the summer.
But this fabric is pretty awesome: I had noticed the upsurge but wasn’t sure if it was the combination of my college PLUS my school.

Owls were huge in the 70’s, they, like everything else in fashion, have a cycle. My mother had this atrocious owl necklace from Avon that she wore all the time, I think she still has it, and now they are going for some decent money on Etsy.

RedHeadKel: It’s because of Agent Scully!
tksjewelry: I don’t think it’ll ever go out of style with Mawrters and others whose mascots are the owl. So I’m stuck. It’s a good thing I like owls!

I have not noticed owls.
Is it a Harry Potter thing?

It’s just a trendy thing…for the past year I see owls, anchors, and chevron everywhere…
Soon they’ll be replaced by some other animal, theme and print. It’s just up to whoever decides these things should be a trend. lol
