wearing a Kipa

Question
I wanted to know why we wear Kipa and since when started to be Halacha.
Answer
We wear it to remind ourselves that there is a Creator above us. It has been accepted practice for many hundreds of years. Most authorities consider it to be a requirement under normal circumstances since it is an accepted Jewish custom with a Halachic basis.
