Mad Hatter Day

MAD HATTER DAY — OCTOBER 6, 2016

October 6 is a day set aside each year to bring out your silly side while celebrating National Mad Hatter Day.

The fictional cartoon character, The Mad Hatter, in Alice’s Adventures In Wonderland, is typically acting silly and that is how the creators decided on their theme of silliness for National Mad Hatter Day.

Celebrate

Grab yourself a top hat and let your silliness out! Use #NationalMadHatterDay to post on social media.

Vivian created a Mad Hatter hat for Hattingdon for the first time this year, 2016. Here it is.

History

Each year since it’s creation in 1986, National Mad Hatter Day has grown in popularity. In 1988, this day received national press coverage.

October 6th was chosen by it’s creators, a group of technicians in Boulder, Colorado, because the Mad Hatter wears a top hat which has a slip of paper on it that says “In This Style 10/6″ *. The slip of paper is believed to be the order to make the hat and the price.

* 10/6″ stands for 10 shillings 6 pence.
