Mad Hatter Day

Date When Celebrated : Always October 6 th

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.

Grab yourself a top hat, and have a a very silly Mad Hatter's Day!

Did You Know? In the 8th Century, mercury was used in hat making in a process called "carroting". Mercury poisoning drove some hatters crazy (mad).


Origin of Mad Hatter Day:

Mad Hatter Day was the brainstorm of a group of computer people in Boulder, Co. It dates back to 1986.  Most likely a bit bored with bits and bytes, they got a little silly and created this quite special day.
