February 10th is Umbrella DayFebruary 10, 2013 is Umbrella Day, but it should be on Tuesday or Wednesday because that is when the rains are supposed to move in.

Umbrella Day is in recognition of the invention of the umbrella, something most of us are glad we have.

Umbrellas not only keep the rain, sun and snow off of our faces, but you can use one for advertising, or even to block the wind. They can be large enough to share or small enough to fit in the glove box of your car or truck.

Of course, in Fernandina Beach, you will often see large umbrellas on the beaches, too.

So, dig out your favorite umbrella and celebrate!
