7 Hats of Christmas: Day 7

Here we are, on Day 7, our final post of the series. This design is just so fun . . . and oh so Christmassy.

Absolutely everyone adores this hat. No doubt about it — Vivian outdid herself. Here it is!

Created in 2013, and released in 2017, Macy is the most popular Hattingdon Christmas hat of all time.

This hat would do very well for Boxing Day tomorrow too . . . . in a way. What is Boxing Day?

Rounded Open Quote in Gray

“Boxing Day is held every December 26th in many countries associated with the British empire,” states the BBC. “The name comes from a time when the rich used to box up gifts to give to the poor. Boxing Day was traditionally a day off for servants — a day when they received a special Christmas box from their masters. The servants would also go home on Boxing Day to give Christmas boxes to their families.”

From all of us to all of you, we wish you a very, merry Christmas. Love, Team Hattingdon.

Anichka is a hat made in Hattingdon’s distinctive classic hat silhouette — created in support of the people and country of Ukraine — in the blue and yellow colours of their flag.

The name Anichka in the Ukrainian, Hebrew origin, means grace, or favoured, and the reason we chose it for this hat — at this time.

The Ukraine Flag

Ukrainians raise flags in defiance of the recent Russian invasion.

Ukraine acquired a distinctive flag in 1949 under the communist regime. The Red Banner of the Soviet Union with its golden hammer, sickle, and star was modified for use in Ukraine by having a horizontal stripe of light blue added at the bottom.

After Ukraine again proclaimed its independence on August 24, 1991, many fought to maintain a communist system under that flag. Eventually, however, anticommunist forces were successful, and the flag was replaced with the nationalist blue-yellow banner on January 28, 1992, seen above.

Nice to see you here. Stop by again and see us soon.

Hattingdon really rocks a top hat, don’t you think? The colours are gorgeous and look great on her.

See you again soon.

How about some poetry to go with this sweet hat?

The butterfly’s assumption-gown

by Emily Dickinson

The butterfly’s assumption-gown,
In chrysoprase apartments hung,
This afternoon put on.
How condescending to descend,
And be of buttercups the friend
In a New England town!


Oh, by the way, the 14th of March is National Learn About Butterflies Day.

Hugs and kisses, and millinery blisses. Love, Hattingdon.
