Mad Hatter Day
October 6, 2015 in the World
Mad Hatter Day is observed on October 06, 2015. It was introduced in 1986 by a group of computer people in Boulder, Co and is a day to be silly and celebrate silliness. The Hatter is a fictional character in Lewis Carroll’s “Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland”. He is often referred to as the Mad Hatter. The card or label on the Hatter’s hat reads “In this style 10/6”, which refers to 10 shillings and six pence, the price of the hat in pre-decimalized British money. That’s why the Mad Hatter Day is celebrated on October 6.
“Mad as a hatter” is a colloquial phrase used in conversation to refer to a crazy person. In 18th and 19th century England mercury was used in the production of felt, which was used in the manufacturing of hats common of the time. People who worked in these hat factories were exposed daily to trace amounts of the metal, which accumulated within their bodies over time, causing some workers to develop dementia caused by mercury poisoning. Thus, the phrase became popular as a way to refer to someone who was perceived as insane.

German-American Day
October 6, 2015 in the USA
The German-American Day is celebrated on October 06, 2015. It is a day to celebrate the German American heritage. The German-American Day is celebrated annually and commemorates the date in 1683 when 13 German families from Krefeld near the Rhine landed in Philadelphia.
These families subsequently founded Germantown, Pennsylvania, the first German settlement in the original thirteen American colonies. Originally celebrated in the nineteenth century, German-American Day died out in World War I as a result of the anti-German sentiment that prevailed at the time. The holiday was revived in 1983.
In 1983, President Ronald Reagan proclaimed October 6th as German-American Day to celebrate and honor the 300th anniversary of German American immigration and culture to the United States.

Come and Take it Day
October 6, 2015 in Texas
While some people might believe this holiday’s originality came from a movie called, ‘Come and Take It Day,’ which was released in 2001. Actually this day originated in a town called Gonzales located in Texas, which commemorates the firing of the first shot of the Texas Revolution on October 2nd 1835.
In early January 1831, Green DeWitt wrote to Ramón Músquiz, the top political official of Bexar, and requested armament for defense of the colony of Gonzales. This request was granted by delivery of a small used cannon. The small bronze cannon was received by the colony and signed for on March 10, 1831, by James Tumlinson, Jr. The swivel cannon was mounted to a blockhouse in Gonzales, Texas and later was the object of Texas pride. At the minor skirmish known as the Battle of Gonzales—the first battle of the Texas Revolution against Mexico—a small group of Texans successfully resisted the Mexican forces who had orders from Col. Domingo de Ugartechea to seize their cannon. As a symbol of defiance, the Texans had fashioned a flag containing the phrase “come and take it” along with a black star and an image of the cannon which they had received four years earlier from Mexican officials. This was the same message that was sent to the Mexican government when they told the Texans that they had to return their cannon; failure to comply with the Mexicans’ original demands led to the failed attempt by the Mexican military to forcefully take back the cannon.
Replicas of the original flag can be seen in the Texas State Capitol, the Bob Bullock Texas State History Museum, the Sam Houston State University CJ Center, the University of Texas at El Paso Library, the Marine Military Academy headquarters building, the Hockaday School Hoblitzelle Auditorium, and in Perkins Library at Duke University.
