February 10th National Umbrella Day

National Umbrella Day – February 10th

The term umbrella comes to us from the Latin word umbra, meaning shade or shadow. History shows umbrellas have been in use for more than 4,000 years when art from ancient Egypt, Assyria, Greece, and China show umbrellas in use.  In 1830, the first Umbrella store opened in London operated by James Smith and Sons. It is still selling umbrellas today.

How to celebrate – Take your umbrella to lunch today. Order an umbrella from James Smith & Sons. Take your umbrella in the shower with you.
