National Hat Day at Sagittarius.

nationalhatday

15th January was National Hat Day and to mark this occasion we sported a range of head wear.

The prize for “best hat” was taken by Bob – who looked a bit like a giant pint of Guinness in his black outfit and “topper”

A few hat facts for you ….

  • In the Middle Ages, hats were an indicator of social status.
  • In the military, hats may denote ones nationality, branch of service, rank and/or regiment.
  • A Thebes tomb painting depicts one of the first pictorials of a hat.  The painting shows a man wearing a conical straw hat.
  • The term “milliner” derived from the city of Milan, Italy.  The best quality hats were made in Milan in the 18th century.

 

We're looking forward to National Pizza day on 9th February!
