Modern Medical Thanksgiving
When you're heading to the doctor, it can be easy to forget to be grateful. Yes, it's not fun to wait in an uncomfortable chair, get weighed in, poked, prodded, and wonder just how much you're going to pay afterward. However, the next time you're dreading a check-up, just think about what Medieval doctors were like! No matter what your problem was, the sure solution was a nice bleeding either by dirty scalpel or leech. In addition, you might be treated to their sometimes deadly poultices, such as a burning mustard plaster or perhaps some wine and horse dung packed around an open wound! Yep, dung. We're not making that up. That was a favorite ingredient in many Medieval medicines. Want to remind people to be thankful for modern medicine? Dress up as a Medieval Plague doctor to remind folks about just how bad things could be!
This plague doctor staff is designed after an important piece of medical equipment during plague times. This staff would have been used to inspect plague victims from a distance. Topped with an eerie bird skull, it matches the classic plague doctor mask to make your doctor ensemble extra eerie!
