Express Yourself for National Hat Day

Today is the day set aside to wear and enjoy a hat of your choice and style.

It’s not really a “National” day. There’s been no act of Congress declaring it so. Some hatter wanting to sell his product probably originated the celebration.

Hats do come in all sizes, shapes, colors and styles. There’s a hat to fit every head size and personality.

Hats can …

  • make a statement.
  • identify your occupation or promote a cause or product.
  • keep your head warm or the sun from your eyes.

In the early 19th century, a woman didn’t go out without her hat.hat1

Today women can choose whether they wish to wear a hat or not unless they are attending the Kentucky Derby then a hat is necessity. After all, The Derby is a chance for a woman to express her inner Southern Belle.

National Hat Day is a fun day to express yourself. Wearing a hat is much like getting into costume, you might be pleasantly surprised to see what type of character you become.

Grab YOUR chance to display your favorite headgear. From the fantastic to the sublime, no rules or no limits.

Why not wear several different hats throughout the day?

  1. I have the worlds ugliest hiking hat ( someone once said that it looked like a cockroach, and that has been one of the nicer comments). I’ll wear it today! Who knew–hat day!

    • I wore my camo facial ski mask this morning. Of course that earlier it was only me, the dogs, and the mule deer. The mule deer didn’t seem impressed.
      Thanks for stopping by the porch today and have fun with your cockroach hat!
