you're looking for something to do today then cover your head because
it's National Hat Day! Decorate your dome today and protect
head from the elements... Let's get right into celebrating
National Hat Day!
WHY IS THIS A
Have you actually gone through your whole life and NEVER
hat at least once!? I would find it very hard to believe if someone
answered yes to that question... so why ask why this is a holiday?
EVERYONE has worn a hat at least once and there are so many
different types of hats out there that it's only right that there's a
holiday set aside to celebrate them. But hats aren't always
as fashion statements though, sometimes they're worn to protect your
head from the elements (like a snowboarding hat or a hard hat) or for
religious reasons (like the Pope's hat).
Hats have been around
for ages; there are even pictures painted on the walls of tombs from
the 5th and 6th century BC of people wearing straw hats. And
are also a bit more complex than you'd think... There's the crown that
covers the top of your head, there's sometimes a bill or a brim to
shade your eyes from the sun, there's a sweatband attached inside the
hat to keep you from ruining your hat on those hot days and then
sometimes there's even a lining. So when you slip one of
magnificent creations onto your head today, think about how grateful
you are that you don't have to walk around with a bare head all the
So how can you celebrate today? It's pretty easy; just slap a
hat onto your head for the day! Go through your house and find your
favorite hat and let it rest on your head for the day. You can even
have a competition with your friends to see who has the coolest hat.
Or you can have a competition to see who has the craziest
aim to shock people with how odd your hat is. Or you could go
yourself a new hat today. Go shopping to find the nicest hat you could
rest on your celebrating head.
How's a bearskin hat sound
to you? Or maybe a nice beaver hat or a deerstalker? Or perhaps you'd
look good in a fez? Or you might need to keep warm, so slip on a
ushanka! How do you think you'd look in a slouch, shako or a
o'shanter? Trust me, you're not going to run out of different
types of hats to buy! And that's half the beauty of hats...
are so many different functional uses for hats, different ways to catch
peoples attention or let them know you belong to a certain clique that
you'll always end up with a handful of hats to rotate on and off your
head on any given day. Or if you have kids you could get some
arts and crafts supplies and have them make their own hats. It'd be a
fun activity to allow them to really show their creativity. I
hope you have an amazing day today and don't forget to cover your head!
