Project Cubbins: Hat 213 - Merry Christmas Edition

Day 213 / Hat 213: Red velvet Santa Claus cap with white faux fur trim and jingle bell detail.

Taken in front of a roaring fire made of my own hand for strategic purposes -- there's only room for one Claus in this Casa!

This Santa lid actually belongs to Bear -- the somewhat life-size stuffed bear with poseable paws that currently resides in the Garlodge. Bear and his holiday hat came into our possession many years ago when we were spending our first Christmas on the West Coast (living on Larrabee Street in West Hollywood at the time) and came home to find Bear  -- in a humongous box -- standing in front of our apartment door. The sender? My father-in-law.

Bear and his jaunty (and exceedingly high-quality I might add) Santa Claus cap epitomize the true spirit of the holiday for me.

Today's tip o' the Christmas cap, therefore, goes to my father-in-law (aka "the Admiral").

Merry Christmas to all - and to all a good night!


Q: OK, nice hat -- but what exactly is Project Cubbins, anyway?

A: One man's homage to Dr. Seuss and his second book, "The 500 Hats of Bartholemew Cubbins," which is celebrating the 75th anniversary of its publication in 2013, Project Cubbins is an attempt to document the wearing of a different hat or piece of headgear every day for 500 consecutive days. No do-aheads, no banking of hats, no retroactive entries. PC started on May 27, 2013 with Hat 1
Got hats? If you loan 'em, you'll get e'm back safe and sound!
