What are we celebrating today?


There are many items in existence whose names have changed (not to protect the innocent) from one century to the next. Such is the case for today’s celebration. If you are not familiar with the brolly, gamp or bumbershoot, what about the parapluie, rainshade or umbrolly? Another name is the sunshade (not to be confused with sun glasses), parasol and of course, the giveaway is the fact February 10th is . . .
