Straw Hat Selfies

Lola: Happy Sunday, everyone! Today isn't only Selfie Sunday it's Straw Hat Day! 

Lexy: Let me tell you a little bit of the history of this day.  The exact day varies a little bit in the U.S. but it's usually said to be May 15th.  Straw Hat Day unofficially marks the beginning of summer, and in days gone by gentleman put away their felt hats and donned straw hats, which are much cooler in the summer. In 1915 the people of Jacksonville, FL were very stern about this because on April 22 of that year it was declared a crime to wear a felt hat after Straw Hat Day. Apparently people took their hats very seriously back then. 

Lola: OK, without further ado here are our straw hat selfies! We hope you like them. 







Are you wearing your straw hats today?
