Mad Hatter Day – 10/6

Mad Hatter Day is October 6th!

Celebrated by Disney fans across the world, this day is dedicated to the Mad Hatter from Alice In Wonderland.

Are you curious as to why October 6th was the chosen date?

10/6 are the numbers written on the card on the Mad Hatter’s hat. The card or label on the Hatter’s hat reads “In this style 10/6″, which refers to 10 shillings and six pence – the price of the hat in pre-decimalized British money. The figure acts as a visual indication of the hatter’s trade. In the UK, 10/6 would point to the tenth of June, but since the day was founded in America it is the 6th of October.
