If there’s one thing at which humans excel, it’s celebrating. Hanukkah, Halloween and Easter all rock up at the same time each year, but why not extend that festive savoir-faire to those lesser known holidays, like Answer Your Cat’s Questions Day, or even Fruitcake Toss Day? If you’re in the market for a few more excuses to indulge, we’ve got a whole host of weird celebration days for you.
Felt Hat Day
On 15th September each year, men and women don their brightest and best felt hats in memory of, well, felt hats. In the 19th century, felt was one of the most common hat materials worn by the gentry and public alike, but the fabric saw its sad demise as other fashion trends emerged and curried the favor of the masses. Felt Hat Day is said to commemorate this historic fashion trend and to reintroduce this neglected clothing gem to the mainstream.
