Today we celebrate a fun and useful holiday that is a bit strange. The tenth of February is "Umbrella Day".
The umbrella or parasol was invented originally to provide shade from the sun. The Latin word "umbra" translates to mean shade or shadow, and that is how "umbrella" got its name. It came to be nearly four thousand years ago and there exists art and artifacts from China, Egypt, Greece and Assyria that prove umbrellas have been around for a long time.
At one point ladies used umbrellas just to shade them from the scorching sun. Then the Chinese saw what they had and made an improvement by waxing their umbrellas rendering it waterproof.
There are a few types of umbrellas that are most popular and they are the lawn, beach and golf umbrellas. They are made of all types of materials now. Some are plastic, vinyl, microfiber and with other waterproof type materials. Years ago umbrellas were made of hard woods like ebony or whalebones. They were covered with oiled canvas or alpaca. The first umbrella store opened in 1830. The shop was called "James Smith and Sons" . It is still standing and can be visited in London, England at 53 New Oxford Street.
Definition of an umbrella : by Wikipedia
"An umbrella or parasol (sometimes colloquially, gamp, brolly, or bumbershoot) is a canopy designed to protect against precipitation or sunlight." "The term parasol usually refers to an item designed to protect from the sun, and umbrella refers to a device more suited to protect from rain." "Often the difference is the material; some parasols are not waterproof." "Parasols are often meant to be fixed to one point and often used with patio tables or other outdoor furniture, or for shelter from the sun." Umbrellas are almost exclusively hand-held portable devices; however, parasols can also be hand-held." "Umbrellas can be held as fashion statements in the twenty first century for some men and women and are sometimes seen as simple accessories that complete an outfit."
"The word umbrella is from the Latin word umbra, which in turn derives from the Ancient Greek ómbros (όμβρος). Its meaning is shade or shadow." "Brolly is a slang word for umbrella, used often in Britain, New Zealand and Australia." "Bumbershoot is a fanciful Americanism from the late 19th century."
When it rains it can be a fun time too. Children love to splash or jump in the puddles. Couples love to walk in the rain hand and hand. And the rain can always remind you of a 1938 song that became very popular with its catchy tune that everyone who heard it once could remember the words. Do you remember; "Pennies From Heaven" ? You do? Then while reading the verse below, sing along to yourself.
"Pennies From Heaven"
Written by John Burke / Music by Arthur Johnston / Sung by Bing Crosby
Every time it rains, it rains Pennies from Heaven,
Don't you know each cloud contains Pennies from Heaven?
You'll find your fortune falling all over town,
So be sure that your umbrella is upside down!
Trade them for a package of sunshine and flowers;
If you want the things you love, you must have showers.
So when you hear it thunder, don't run under a tree --
'Cause there'll be Pennies from Heaven for you and me.
