Ear Muff Day???

Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Realty Chesterfield

Ear Muff Day

Ear Muff Day is always on March 13th.  Why you ask?  On this day March 13, 1877, the United States Patent Office awarded Chester Greenwood patent #188,292 for his invention.

Folks in cold climates can really appreciate this day.  And, they are ever so thankful to the person who created the ear muff. However, if you are fortunate enough to live in Florida, you might not even know what an ear muff is.

Ear muffs keep your ears warm (DUH) and protect you from ear infections and earaches resulting from icy cold wind and weather.  Manufacturers have responded to their popularity with a variety of designs and colors, making one to fit almost every personality.

It is really easy to celebrate Ear Muff Day.... just wear your ear muffs!

So on this day March 13th we offer up a really big “THANK YOU” to Chester Greenwood the father of the earmuff.

Growing up in San Antonio I don't recall needing ear muffs but I am sure my memory is a little selective.  :-))

Don, thanks for the information.

Chester's brother Lester, invented the "Eye Muffs", but was killed in an auto accident the first day he tried wearing them while driving his car.

LOL

Don, I have a set of earmuffs in my car at all times.  Use them mainly in the winter when I'm showing property or listing a home.  Sure glad they were invented.
