Straw Hat Day 5.15.2016

What’s Straw Hat Day?  I did a little googling to find out more about it.  Straw Hat Day, May 15th, was recognized back around 1915 and is considered the unofficial start of summer.  It marks the day that you’re supposed to put your felt hat away and start wearing your straw hat…because straw hats are cooler…temperture-wise.

So in honor of Straw Hat Day…I had to have a selfie of me sportin’ a straw hat!  I think I look really cool…and I don’t mean my temperature!  Happy Straw Hat Day to all of you!
