Weird or Not Weird?

Yesterday for lunch, we went with my in-laws to a restaurant to celebrate Mothers' Day. While we are seated at our table, in walked a large group of people including a woman who had just celebrated her graduation (presumably from College or graduate school). How did I know she had just celebrated her graduation? She was still wearing her cap and gown. In the restaurant.

I thought that was weird.

    I've seen that many times. Dunno, seems like it's the custom these days for some, especially if they are going straight from graduation.

    When I went out to celebrate my high school graduation with my class, I don't recall anyone wearing their cap and gown at the restaurant. In fact, I think people already started removing their caps and gowns at some point during the collation.

    I think it's sweet she was still that excited about this milestone in her life.

    Why is it weird.
    Just the same as going from the wedding hall into the hotel in your wedding gown.
