Felt Hat Day
About Felt Hat Day
Date When Celebrated: This holiday is always observed on September 15
Felt Hat Day is today. On this September 15 holiday day, men traditionally wear a felt hat. Women can participate in this day, too. Like they guys, they just have to have a felt hat.
Back in the early to mid-1900s, hats were popularly worn by both men and women. It was stylish. At that time, felt was a common material for men’s hats. With cooler Fall weather approaching, the guys went to the coat closet and dusted off their hats and began to wear them once more.
Celebrating this day is easy….just wear a felt hat. It can be of any style, as long as the material is felt. No other hat material will do.
