Mad Hatter Day

Mad Hatter Day is a great day to be silly and celebrate silliness.

The Mad Hatter is a fictional cartoon character depicted in Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. The Mad Hatter is always acting silly. So, on Mad Hatter Day, it is only fair and fitting to act a little silly yourself.
Despite being a silly day, the selection of the date was actually quite logical. The Mad Hatter wears a top hat. On the front of the hat is a slip of paper with '10/6' written on it. The paper is believed to be an order to make the hat, and that it costs ten shillings sixpence.

Hatter:
The Hatter (called Hatta in Through the Looking-Glass) is a fictional character in Lewis Carroll's Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and the story's sequel Through the Looking-Glass. He is often referred to as the Mad Hatter, though this term was never used by Carroll. The phrase 'mad as a hatter' pre-dates Carroll's works and the characters the Hatter and the March Hare are initially referred to as 'both mad' by the Cheshire Cat, with both first appearing in Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, in the seventh chapter titled 'A Mad Tea-Party'.
Grab yourself a top hat, and have a a very silly Mad Hatter's Day!
