November 23. The day after US Thanksgiving. Also know as Black Friday – a HUGE shopping day when people share the true Christmas spirit by trampling each other to get bargains for things they don’t really NEED. It’s a kind of strange human holiday.
It is also National Leftovers Day – which makes sense because the best part of big meals is the leftovers – and there are often plenty after Thanksgiving dinner. Trust me – we dogs take inventory when it comes to leftovers.
It is also National Flossing Day. Guess the dentists wanted to capitalize on the fact that people eat so much for Thanksgiving – so they definitely need to floss. Flossing is important. But does ANYBODY do it enough? Just wondering…
But besides these holidays it is also Wolfenoot. I must confess, I’m late to hear about this one – but I DO like the sound of it. It was essentially started by a 7 year-old boy in New Zealand. It celebrates the spirit of the wolf – BUT the cool thing – it celebrates anyone who is/has been kind to DOGS. You eat roast meat and have a cake that looks like a moon. Gifts are hidden around the house, and the people who are kind to dogs get extra gifts. They even have an official website:
My guess is that if you are reading this blog (written by a dog) you definitely fall in the category of someone who is kind to dogs! So cook up a big steak tonight (or a tofu version if you are vegetarian) and celebrate Wolfenoot. And, of course, don’t forget to share with your canine companion.
“Have a howly Wolfenoot”. Peace and pawsup!
