🗓️ January 15
It’s time to don your best chapeau, because it’s time to tip our hats to the greatest holiday of all time: Hat Day!
January 15 is dedicated to celebrating the timeless accessory that keep the sun out of our eyes, they keep our head warm, and let’s not forget the stylish statement they make.
The history of hats is as rich as the materials they’re made from.
Hats have been used for centuries to keep our heads warm, protect us from the elements, and make a fashion statement. From the grandiose headdresses of ancient Egyptian pharaohs to the top hats and bonnets of Victorian England, hats have been used to show status, protect from the elements, and make a fashion statement.
And let’s not forget the practicality of hats, they can shield our eyes from the sun, keep our heads warm in winter, and provide a handy place to store snacks (we won’t judge).
Alas, the origin of Hat Day, despite many minutes of search engine research, still remains unknown.
But, who needs an origin story when you have a fabulous hat on your head?
But let’s not just talk about the history of hats, let’s celebrate it!
Here are a few unconventional ways to celebrate Hat Day:
- Try on a new hat: Break out of your comfort zone and try on a new style of hat. From sun hats to berets, there’s a hat out there for everyone!
- Go on a hat hunt: Visit a local thrift store or vintage shop and see how many different types of hats you can find.
- Host a hat party: Invite your friends over for a hat-themed party. Encourage them to bring their favorite hat, play hat-themed games, and enjoy some hat-themed snacks (we suggest donut hats).
- Have a hat swap: Gather your friends, family, or coworkers and have a hat swap. You never know, you may find a new hat to add to your collection.
- Host a hat-making competition with your friends. Who will make the best hat?
So, whether you prefer a practical baseball cap or a whimsical fez, there’s no denying the power of a good hat.
So, grab a hat, invite your friends, and let the celebration begin!
Just remember to wear it with lots of hat-itude!
