About the Holiday

Umbrella Day is a day to celebrate the little invention that keeps the rain drops from falling on our heads. The umbrella has been used in many different cultures throughout history for over 4000 years. The umbrella was developed for protection from the rain and to shade from the sun. The umbrella is still used in the same ways today, but can also be used in photography to manipulate lighting. The word umbrella comes from the Latin word umbra meaning shade, so today if it rains or the sun is shining get out your favorite umbrella to commemorate this historic invention.
