Customs & Traditions

The classy, crazy, fun and colorful outfits we all love to wear when we gather.
Birthday Suits

Royal Titles
In the spirit of play,every Hatter is encouraged to dream up a title for herself.
A ceremony to honor a chapter Queen. It can be simple, elaborate, crazy, silly or all of the above as long as it's fun!
A Pink Hatter's "rite of pasage"which may include a creative ceremony or just a simple swapping of a pink hat for a red one.
Official Instrument
The Kazoo. Why? Anyone can hum and play one; it's portable; it's cheap; and group concerts ae easily arranged.
Official Sport
Yes, we have one: It is shopping, of course.
The Wave
The Queenly wave, which comprises the official RHS reeting, is performed by cupping the hand, fingers together, and ever-so gently swiveling the wrist back and forth in the direction of the adoring throng(or other Hatters).
Red Hatters enjoy gestures of affection when bidding each other hello or goodbye, but hugs ten to knock hats to the gound. Therefore, when in our regalia, we often content ourselves with mutual shoulder touching and gentle brushing of hat brims.
Gutsy Gals
Courageous Supporting Members who attend RHS events all by themselves and soon find themselves welcomed by all.
This is a special nickname given to our Supporting Members.
Hatters don't have them(a bit too boring for our tastes). We prefer gatherings, hoots, get-togethers, affairs, and galas.
