Hoodie Hoo What?

I saw this sign when I went to pick up Auntie Fern last Thursday.


Do you know about Hoodie Hoo Day? I didn't.

You can google it, or just check out this link to Holiday Insights. This is what is says:

Northern Hemisphere Hoodie-Hoo Day

When : Always on February 20

On this winter day, people go out at noon, wave their hands over their heads and chant "Hoodie-Hoo".

It is a day to chase away winter and bring in spring. After all, everyone in the northern hemisphere are sick and tired of winter at this point and a little crazy being cooped up inside all winter and not seeing the sun.

Did you know? Hoodie Hoo Day is a copyrighted holiday. It was created and is provided, courtesy of the great folks at Wellcat.com


Well -- there you have it. We missed it. Thank goodness.

Well I've never heard of Hoodie-Hoo Day so I've learned something today. Will probably have forgotten all about it by next year. LOL

The description sounds like someone went to the bathroom and discovered, too late, that they were out of toilet paper and had to use their hands. Then they went outside to shake them dry. But that's just my opinion.

Never heard of this one! Does Hallmark have a card for it yet?

In all my nearly 40 years...I've NEVER once heard of this holiday. Maybe it's a good thing Hallmark hasnt heard of it either? They'd find a way to capitalize on it for sure.

Oh wait... I know what it is! It's the day when all of residents of Who-ville parade around their town in brand spankin new Hoodies! How could I POSSIBLY forget THAT?? Quite evidentally the person that wrote the sign misspelled Who.

Aw bummer! I am so ready for spring and I would have loved to celebrate! In private, of course. Can't see myself saying "Hoodie Hoo" in the library or WalMart or someplace like that...
sirdar said…
Thats a new one for me. We must have missed it too as we are going to be getting colder this week. I'm ready for some warm weather....

I am not yet dressed but I will go immediately in the middle of our street wave my hands over my had and sing as loud as I can Hoodie-Hoo !
If I am not posting tomorrow I will be with a pneumonia in hospital because my neighbors throw buckets of water on me !
But spring will come !

Hoodie-Hoo to you too!

You people in the northern hemisphere are really strange sometimes.
Yes Pamela, there are several songs about Ned Kelly so one of them may well have made its way to the States.

hum.. I did not know this!! You'll have to remind us early next year!!

I refuse to celebrate copyrighted holidays. But I would consider going out on the 21 and going Hoo Hoo Hoo. That wouldn't violate any copyright. Unless Santa Claus has that reserved.
lol makes Ground Hog Day seem important! hehehe

Hope you are having a great week!

Hmm. Sort of sounds a bit rude to me.
lisaschaos said…
Oh how fun! I'm so sad I missed it. Had never heard of it before but hopefully can remember next year!
VeRonda said…
Honey, I've never heard of it. But, I'll go outside right now screaming if it'll make this cold go away. LOL!... I know I'm off a few days, but it's the thought that counts!!
Tammy said…
Even I- who know about lost holidays such as May Day- had never heard of Hoodie Hoo day! Although I can see how being cooped up all winter can make us all want to run around and holler...;)
kitten said…
I guess my momma was right. You are never to old to learn something new!
Hugs~
Hope all is well~
Kila said…
Haha, nope, hadn't heard of it! But if it'll chase away winter, it's worth a try!
Merle said…
Dear Pamela ~~ New to me too. Wonder if it would work in reverse and get rid of the heat and fires we are having in my state. Glad to hear you have small feet, but you had better lay off the choate a bit.
Take care, Love, Merle.

Well darn! I so would have participated in this. I could use a good Hoodie-Hoo day LOL Maybe I'll write it down on the calendar for next year :o)

for the southeast we've had one heck of a winter too.
but, the first daffodils are blooming in a protected area.
dawn said…
I am pretty sure that is the day the weather got really cold and it started snowing. Probably because we missed the day.
