History and Origin of Earmuff Day
Big-eared Chester Greenwood is the father of the Earmuff. Greenwood patented the “Champion Ear Protector” on March 13, 1877. It later became known as “ear mufflers”, and was eventually shortened to “earmuffs”. While easily recognize why this date was selected, our research has not yet uncovered who created this special holiday. Perhaps, it was a descendant of Chester Greenwood!?
We recognize that this date was selected to celebrate the date they were invented. But, wouldn’t it be more logical to celebrate Earmuff Day in January or February, during the coldest days of the winter!?
