Umbrella Cover Day
Umbrella Cover Day is observed on July 6 of every year. It is quite peculiar to celebrate umbrella covers for some reasons. Umbrella covers might need a special day to recognise them as they are the most neglected part of an umbrella. Umbrella covers are often discarded on the first day, on the opening of the umbrella and are often thought to be a functionless accessory. Umbrella covers protect umbrella from damaging of moths and insects; they also help you in carrying the wet umbrellas during the rainy seasons. Therefore to keep an umbrella new and attractive it is essential that you use the umbrella covers regularly. Umbrellas covers come in attached with almost all the models of umbrellas. Umbrella covers are also used to market the brand under which the umbrellas are sold. So on this day go on a raid for your umbrella covers and cover those umbrellas.
“God is like an umbrella of illusion and belief, In rainy days we use him, in sunny days we forget him.” – Debasish Mridha
