September 15: Felt Hat Day

model-in-a-hatIt’s official: summer is over. According to tradition, on September 15 it’s time to put away your straw hats from the summer and don a felt hat for winter.

This fashion rule reminds me of how you can only wear white from Memorial Day to Labor Day (unless you’re like me, and ignore the rule), but it’s slightly more spread out: Straw Hat Day is held every May 15, and straw hats are proper for 4 months. Then, it’s felt hats until spring comes again!

“The land yields its harvest;
God, our God, blesses us.”

Psalm 67:6
