   Umbrella Day!

Happy Umbrella Day everyone!
This holiday celebrates the Umbrella. On rainey days we are all glad the umbrella was invented. On this holiday you are encouraged to take a walk in the rain and enjoy your umbrella .

Origin of this Holiday
Our research did not find the creator, or the origin of this day.  It is possible this holiday may of been created by the greeting card industry because we find reference to it on greeting card sites that say-

"Hey, it's Umbrella Day! Be it heat or rain, just flaunt your colorful umbrella and go out. Have fun with all your near and dear ones. Add to the fun by sending them cool and colorful umbrella day ecards."

This holiday is referred to as a "National" day- However, we did not find any congressional records or presidential proclamations for this day. Even though we didn't, this is still a holiday that is publicized to celebrate.  So enjoy the day and have fun with it.

Definition of a Umbrella: by wikipedia encyclopedia
"An umbrella or parasol (sometimes colloquially, gamp, brolly, or bumbershoot) is a canopy designed to protect against precipitation or sunlight." "The term parasol usually refers to an item designed to protect from the sun, and umbrella refers to a device more suited to protect from rain." "Often the difference is the material; some parasols are not waterproof." "Parasols are often meant to be fixed to one point and often used with patio tables or other outdoor furniture, or for shelter from the sun." Umbrellas are almost exclusively hand-held portable devices; however, parasols can also be hand-held." "Umbrellas can be held as fashion statements in the twenty first century for some men and women and are sometimes seen as simple accessories that complete an outfit."

"The word umbrella is from the Latin word umbra, which in turn derives from the Ancient Greek ómbros (όμβρος). Its meaning is shade or shadow." "Brolly is a slang word for umbrella, used often in Britain, New Zealand and Australia." "Bumbershoot is a fanciful Americanism from the late 19th century."
