National Mad Hatter Day - 2021-10-06
What is National Mad Hatter Day?
We have all heard of or used the term “mad as a hatter” when describing someone eccentric. But do you know the history of this term? In the 18th and 19th centuries, hat makers would use mercury nitrate in the production of hats, not knowing their harmful effects. The mercury nitrate would cause symptoms of madness. Today, however, when you call someone mad, it is mostly seen as a term of endearment because of their eccentrics or quirkiness. Normal is boring, so be as quirky as you want! National Mad Hatter Day is the day to celebrate your quirks and be silly. You could host a traditional Mad Hatter’s tea party or tell riddles all day long. This is the day to be a jokester! Wear a funky outfit, or simply break away from your routine and do something crazy. If you are not bold enough, you could rather attend a production of Alice in Wonderland or read the book to bring back some childhood memories.
When is National Mad Hatter Day?

History of National Mad Hatter Day
National Mad Hatter Day was founded in 1986 by a group of computer techs in Boulder, Colorado. The date 10/6 is a nod to the tag in the brim of the Mad Hatter's hat in The Alice of Wonderland films and books.
