HELP WATTS TO THE NINES!!
You have all heard the phrase “to the nines”. Research shows that this means – “to be the best that you can be”
WATTS IS ENTERING OUR NINTH SEASON – SO WE ARE ASKING FOLKS TO HELP WATTS TO THE NINES, TO BE THE VERY BEST THAT WE CAN BE FOR THE GUESTS WE SERVE, BY DONATING IN INCREMENTS OF NINE
$9 – $9.99 – $90 – $99.99 – $9 for 9 months – YOU GET THE IDEA
There’s plenty of folk tales for the phrase that link clothing with the number nine. But centuries before to the nines might also refer to a group of nine, examples of which pop up in myth and history all over the world.
- In Norse cosmology, the great tree Yggdrasil unites nine worlds.
- The ancient Greeks had nine muses.
- In Europe during the Middle Ages, the Nine Worthies were men drawn from pagan, Jewish and Christian history as personifications of chivalry.
- In Christianity, the fruits and the gifts of the Holy Spirit are both nine in number.
