Why Is It Rude to Wear a Hat Indoors?

Answer

Wearing a hat indoors is considered disrespectful because hats were worn outdoors to protect one's head when working from dust and soot and it was seen as a sign that you thought your hosts' house was dirty. It was also seen as a sign that you were in a hurry to leave so you wouldn't even remove your hat. Sikhs and Jews are just two of the many groups that mandate a head covering as a sign of respect for their religion.
