Trivia Tuesday

To celebrate the Southern Hemisphere spring, today’s Trivia Tuesday comes with open-toed footwear. That’s right kids – if you are one of the first ten people to answer these five questions correctly, you will win a pair of Dupe thongs – huzzah!

What are Dupes? They are the super soft Brazilian sister brand to Havaianas. They are really comfy and they come in lots of nice colours. Daisies

So without any further adieu:

1. Where were thongs (otherwise known as flip-flops or jandals) invented?

2. If you were at the Sakura Matsuri Festival, what would you be celebrating?

3. What is the current estimated population of the world?

4. Is Kokomo a real place? If so, where is it?

5. What does the Hebrew word ‘shalom’ mean?
