National Mad Hatter Day

National Mad Hatter Day

National Mad Hatter Day is a celebration of the Mad Hatter. John Tenniel’s original illustration of the Mad Hatter in Alice’s Adventures In Wonderland (more commonly known by Lewis Caroll as Alice In Wonderland) depicts him wearing a hat with the note “In this Style 10/6”. We know that this order was actually established at the time of the drawing. It was supposed to have meant that a hat in this style would cost 10 Shillings or Sixpence. However, we use this picture as inspiration to dress in the Mad Hatter’s style on 10/6. (In the UK, this would be the tenth June, but in America, it is the sixth of October).

National Mad Hatter Day gives you the chance to show your madness. You will be familiar with the Mad Hatter if you’ve ever seen Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, or read the book. He is a funny character that Sir John Tenniel originally illustrated. He is a hilarious character, well-known for his absurd riddles. He is a charming character that makes us laugh and brings out our silly side. This is National Mad Hatter Day!

Did you know that the Mad Hatter is just the Hatter? It’s just that everyone refers to him simply as the Mad Hatter. He is not only an integral part of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, but has also been featured in many other media. These include Once Upon a Time and Pandora Hearts.

A general day of silliness was celebrated by Boulder computer-folk on April 26, 1986, inspired by John Tenniel’s drawings of the Mad Hatter in Alice In Wonderland. It was first announced on computer networks that year, and became more popular as people realized its value. Some people did less harm by celebrating silliness then if they had done their jobs.

It was first recognized as a holiday in 1988 and first received national media coverage.

A colloquial expression that refers to a mad person is “Mad as the hatter”. Mercury was used to produce felt in 18th- and 19th-century England. This felt was used in making hats. Mercury poisoning can be fatal for some people who work in these hat factories. The phrase was used to describe someone who was considered insane.

Not only is it a day for silliness, but recent celebrations also include finding something totally normal in your daily life. To look professional at work, it is a good idea to wear a noose around the neck.
