The Note in the Mad Hatter’s Hat

bday 10-6 mad hatter day 6

Today is officially recognized as National Mad Hatter Day.The original artwork by John Tenniel in Lewis Carroll’s “Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland” features the Mad Hatter – always with a hat bearing the note “In This Style 10/6”.While this note would typically indicate the hat style would cost 10 shillings and sixpence, this artistic detail is what landed this eccentric holiday on the date of October 6 (10/6).
