On May 31st, 1678, the Godiva procession through Coventry began.
Godiva (sometimes Godgifu) (c. 980 – September 10, 1067) was an Anglo-Saxon lady, who, according to legend, rode naked through the streets of Coventry in England in order to gain a remission of the oppressive toll imposed by her husband on his tenants.
You can't be surprised that I like this story! Also, for the record.......not all that impressed with the chocolate - Hershey's is better.
