This announcement officially establishes July 9 of each year as National Funny Hat Day. To join in this grand celebration of youthful silliness and exuberance, participants should acquire a funny hat and wear it prominently for at least three hours today. National Funny Hat Day strives to promote the ideals of community and fellowship through the universal language of funny hats. It is our hope that you join in our festivities.

National Funny Hat Day was not established by an Act of Congress.
