Mad Hatter Day

Today we celebrate The Mad Hatter from Lewis Caroll's classic book Alice's Adventures in Wonderland.

It's time to recognize the reality that is nonsense and
the silliness that is sane.

Despite being a silly day, the selection of the date was actually quite logical.
The Mad Hatter wears a top hat, and on the front of the hat is a slip of paper with "10/6" written on it.
The paper is believed to be an order to make the hat, and that it costs ten shillings sixpence.

So, grab a top hat, act a little silly, and go have yourself
a very merry Mad Hatter Day!
