New Weekly: Fun Holiday - Umbrella Day

Umbrellas have always been a part of human history, though in ancient times they were used only by the nobility and by the rich. In many cultures, umbrellas were used as part of religious ceremonies and rituals.

In the 18th century, umbrellas became a popular women's fashion accessory and by the end of the 19th century, umbrellas had become a household item.
Today, with advances in technology, umbrellas have become smaller, lighter, easier to carry and more resilient to wind and strong rain. A majority of umbrellas on the market these days are manufactured in China.

Although umbrellas are sometimes also called parasols, parasols may not always be waterproof and are usually intended to shield people from sunshine rather than rain.
Umbrellas are no longer just for when it's rainy weather. These days they are used for anything from keeping the sun or rain out of your face, to fashion statements or weddings.

How to Celebrate?
Check the weather in your location and bring out your coolest umbrella to accessorize your outfit.
Go to the beach, and relax under your beach umbrella while having a drink with an umbrella in it.
Show us how you'll be using your umbrella on National Umbrella Day

Did You Know…
…that some people believe that opening an umbrella indoors is considered to bring bad luck?

Guess who's back?!!!

Who though that ladies from the 18th century could be so fashionable? So my entry is from the 18th century.
I probably won't celebrate this wacky holiday, but to answer your question: It's currently summer here, so the only way I'm getting close to an umbrella is to shade myself from the sun. :)

It's winter here and while it could rain as easily as snow, winter rain is really just awful. I'll be spending umbrella day dreaming of warm breezes on a cool spring day with a gentle rain bringing blooming flowers instead of muddy slush puddles.

Hello :)
Travelling around the world and blogging is my passion and work
At the moment I’m in London and the weather can be unpredictable. Londoners get used to carrying both an umbrella and sunglasses to be prepared for all eventualities!

Hello ♥

My lady took her umbrella, and headed to Tokyo.
She wants to visit Sensō-ji - ancient Buddhist temple located in there.
Tokyo Tower, too! And Imperial Palace of course!
Tsukiji Market - well you need to eat somewhere ;)
She'll try original Japanese sushi and chai.
She'll take a walk thru Shinjuku Gyoen National Garden.
Cross the Rainbow Bridge.
And of course can't skip Ghibli Museum!♥

SERBIAN
  • Ravens often appear in pairs and play the role of harbingers of tragic news, usually announcing death.

CHINESE
  • Giving a clock as a gift has the same pronunciation as attending their funeral.

GENERAL MYTHS
  • Opening an umbrella while indoors is also considered unlucky.
  • It is unlucky if a black cat to crosses your path.


I plan on staying indoors that day...nowhere near my umbrella.
