Happy Mad Hatter Day
Today is Mad Hatter Day! How cool is that? I had no idea that he had a day. Although there is a day for everything, so I shouldn’t be too surprised.
In case you live under a rock, the Mad Hatter is a character from Lewis Caroll’s book, Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. He has been played and cartooned over and over again in movies and tv shows. My favorites, of course, are the Disney versions. I do like the cartoon better, but I like the Mad Hatter better in the live action Disney movie.
Anyways, Mad Hatter day started in 1986 by a group of computer techs in Boulder, Colorado. Today was chosen because of the 10/6ths label that is on the Mad Hatter’s hat. Although the 10/6ths is actually supposed to mean 10 shillings and sixpence.
Since Halloween is on the way, I figured I’d round up some of the awesome Mad Hatter costumes. Check them out!
