Straw Hat Day

May 15 is Straw Hat Day!

Although there is some discrepancy as to the actual date of Straw Hat Day and some think it should fall on the second Saturday in May, most believe that it should be celebrated on May 15 each year.  Regardless of the date, Straw Hat Day is considered a sign of the beginning of summertime, as it was the day when men would replace their winter hats with their summer hats, which were made of straw.

One popular version of a straw hat for men is the Panama hat, which was worn by Clark Gable in the 1939 film Gone with the Wind.  Celebrate Straw Hat Day by sporting a straw hat of your own – Panama or otherwise!
