January 15th (Sunday) was National Hat Day. I saw a lot of milliners outside of the U.S. celebrating National Hat Day, so maybe other countries have designated the same date. In any case, Happy (belated) National Hat Day!
I shared the photo on my Instagram, and … *sheepish grin* … I posted the following Tweet:

Of course, baseball caps and knit beanies are hats. We might as well have a National Clothing Day or a National Footwear Day. There are more kinds of hats than you can even think of to name! And people wear hats for all sorts of reasons. As part of a uniform. To protect themselves from sun or falling objects. To stay warm. Cosplay. Keeping the rain off your face. Going to the Kentucky Derby. Going to a vintage reenactment event. To cover up hair loss. Getting married. And my favorite reason … because traditional millinery styles are fabulous accessories!
How about a Kentucky Derby Hat?
Or a bridal hat?
Or a fur felt hat to keep your ears warm?
Or a … sushi fascinator?
Sure, probably 99% of the population thinks of baseball caps when they wear a hat or celebrate National Hat Day. But there is so much more to hats! Any style, any occasion you can think of, it’s a great day to wear a hat!
