National Hat Day

When : Always January 15th

National Hat Day is set aside to wear and enjoy a hat of your choice and style. Isn't it great that hats come in all shapes, sizes, colors, and styles? There's one to fit every size head and personality. Often, hats are used to make a statement, or to promote a cause or a product.

Oh yeah... hats have logical uses, too. Some hats (Aka helmets), offer safety protection. Some hats keep your head boring.

National Hat Day is not intended to just keep you warm. Its a chance to make a statement and to display you favorite headgear. We suggest you wear a number of different hats over the course of the day.

Did you know? More body heat is lost from your head than other parts of the body. So, wearing a hat goes a long way towards staying warm on a cold winter's day (or night).

Origin of National Hat Day:
Its no doubt that National Hat Day was created by a hat loving individual or group.

There is no evidence to suggest that this is truly a "National" day, which requires an act of congress.

    I love hats and they don't need to be boring to keep the head warm. Touques can come in all sorts of shapes and sizes and even dressed up for FUN

    I wear them every time I go outside in the winter because I need to keep the cold out of my ears, but also in the summer I wear lightweight hats. I do take my hat off when I am inside. especially in the church. Not so much when I go into the grocery store for a quick minute though....

    Hats! The bane of teachers' existence for so many years! I'm sure I've had more sets-to with kids over their wearing hats in the classroom than over any other single irritating thing they might do.

    I accept the modern approach (wear a hat if you must) with mixed feelings--such a relief not to have to do battle over it, but still something deep down in my values system says kids who wear hats indoors are being disrespectful . . . .

    Breaking News!!!

    (From the Los Angeles Times online newspaper)

    In other National Hat Day related news, (and really, how often do you hear that?), fast-food chain Arby's -- the one with the cowboy-hat logo -- is urging customers to sign a White House petition designating the ten-gallon hat "America's first and only official national hat." (To sweeten the deal, it's offering a coupon for 50% off a chocolate molten lava cake.)

    Celebrate and blow your nutrition plan at the same time!

    Funny, I always heard that men stopped wearing hats when President Kennedy took office. Reportedly, he didn't wear one and consequently neither did men. A fashion trend. Growing up, I thought this was bunk.

    Years later, women entertainers started wearing hats as part of their outfits. Low and behold, women started wearing the same type of hat. Go figure?!?

    Interesting. I'll stick with the good old stocking cap, thank you. It is cold here in Minnesota and I need my ears. It is also the only insulation that the poor top of my head has against the cold as all my shingles have fallen off.
