Life is a Special Occasion!
National Hat Day takes place on January 15, 2016. A hat is a head covering. It can be worn for protection against the elements, for ceremonial or religious reasons, for safety, or as a fashion accessory. In the past, hats were an indicator of social status.
Cold head? A great solution might be to wear a hat; and what better opportunity than Hat Day? National Hat Day is not intended to just keep your noggin warm. Its a chance to make a statement and to display you favorite headgear. We suggest you wear a number of different hats over the course of the day.
If you can't see the Bright Side, polish the dull side
THOUGHT FOR TODAY
Whenever you wear your hat, your day will be special.
I was always told that our body heat goes out through the top of our heads, so I keep my head covered when it gets cold out, either by the hood of my coat or by wearing a hat. I often wear a straw hat in the summertime too, to shield my head and eyes from the sun. But my favorite hat of all times is my party hat. My children gave me this sombrero for my birthday a few years ago now. I keep it hanging on the coatrack here at my house to remind me that every day is a day to celebrate.
They say we’re to be in the low 40’s today with some rain. This will probably wipe out any remaining snow we have but there is snow in the forecast for tomorrow so it won’t be gone very long at all. Looks like the week ahead is going to be another very cold one.
Meanwhile I’m going to try to enjoy this short but sweet January thaw.
I hope you all have a FANTASTIC Friday !
My darling daughter
