Mad as a Hatter

MadHatterDay began in Boulder, CO, in 1986, among some computer folk. The date was chosen from the illustrations by John Tenniel in Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, wherein the Mad Hatter is always seen wearing a hat bearing a slip of paper with the notation "In this style 10/6". What do people do on MadHatterDay? In general, celebrate silliness. What we did was:

dress in crazy hats

have a tea party (wearing the hats we made for art)
read books about hats
and even ate hats for snack!
