in 1986
The original stories of “Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland”
by Lewis Caroll were published with the now famous
illustrations of John Tenniel.

He depicted the Hatter with a price tag on his hat saying
“In this style 10/6”.

The 10/6 was how English price tags in that time would
depict the price of 10 shillings and 6 pence.
Because the creators of this holiday were from the USA,
the date was chosen in month/day format.

Mad Hatter Day would have been on 10th of June
