FEBRUARY 10 NATIONAL UMBRELLA DAY If it happens to be raining today, then National Umbrella Dilly Day is the perfect day to celebrate the appreciation of the invention of the umbrella! Umbrellas are folding canopies supported by metal or wooden ribs, and are usually mounted on a metal, wooden, or plastic frame. When opened, the “ribs” and attached cloth, fabric, or plastic unfold out above the user's head like splayed fingers, protecting her from precipitation or sunlight. Umbrellas come in all sorts of designs, patterns, colors, shapes, even brands. Extend a silent “thank you” to your umbrella today!
