Things were a lot different back in 1830. For one, blogging was in its infancy and it was just called 'keeping a journal' back then. Another thing that was different was people's taste in music. If you don't believe me then how could you explain the phenomenon that was Polka music. It started in Germany but quickly took over the entire western world as the preferred music of the masses. See? Things were different back then.
But not so different. Just like today, when a new trend in popular culture explodes, companies, entrepreneurs and taste-makers swarm to capitalize and cash in. So when Polka had the whole world thumping to the sweet sweet beats of the tuba, American clothing manufacturers were fighting it out to see who could grab the lucrative Polka market.
Some unknown genius developed a fabric and, thinking he should ally himself with the trend, named it Polka Dot. Thanks to its association with the music the fabric became a hit and children's' clothing has been gay ever since. It had nothing to do with the music other than some clever marketing and a catchy name. Polka

means Polish Man
