MAD HATTER DAY

Saturday, October 6th: Grab a hat, any hat! It’s MAD HATTER DAY today, the second silliest day of the year. It’s time to party!

Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland is home to the Mad Hatter, a silly, crazy character. October 6th is the date chosen for Mad Hatter Day because he wears a top hat with a slip of paper that says 10/6. The paper is probably an order to make the hat, which costs ten shillings sixpence. But, we’ll take it as a reason to celebrate.

In the past a lot of hatters did end up going mad, or crazy. In the ‘old’ days, the days where you weren’t properly dressed without a hat, mercury was used in the hat making process. Now we know better, and know that mercury is not necessarily our friend, at least to be handling or touching. So now, hatters don’t go crazy. Well, except on Mad Hatters Day … or if they’ve had a little too much “celebrating”.

Look for every reason to celebrate life, even if it does include a mad hat or two.
