National Felt Hat Day - 2021-09-15
What is National Felt Hat Day?
On September 15th, mark your calendar for National Felt Hat Day! The holiday honors a stylish accessory that has been worn for thousands of years. Traditionally, men's and women's hats have been practical, status symbols, and even fashion statements. At this time of year, people traded the lighter, cooler straw hat for the warmer felt hat. There were also rules about what to wear and where to wear it. For example, it was considered good manners to learn how to remove your hat at an early age. Felt hats were popular in the 16th and 17th centuries, but they were made from beaver fur. During this time, demand for beaver hats was so high that it depleted the population. In the past, many types of hats have been worn. We can easily identify a person from a different century by their hat. The Quaker's buckle, a stovepipe hat, and a pork pie all remind us of a president. Other hats have odd names such as stingy brim and bowler.
