Yup, this post is all her fault. If she hadn’t reminded us that we all missed National Underwear Day on August fifth, I wouldn’t have gotten curious about other
weird unique holidays.
That’s how I found Hoodie-Hoo Day (February 20th). Holiday Insights, the website where I first heard about this little gem states:
‘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.’
Did the woman with the microphone at the beginning say ‘ha-ha’ after she said Hoodie-Hoo?
Now it’s just my opinion here, but I’m fairly sure that running outside, waving your hands over your head, and chanting, “Hoodie-Hoo, Hoodie-Hoo” will be effective. Although I don’t believe it will bring in spring. Actually I believe it will bring in something else…and in preparation for that, I have a request.
Mark your calendars. Yup. Put a big red circle around February 20, 2013. Set your computer reminder program to notify so you don’t forget. Then let’s all go stand on a curb in the most well traveled area of the cities in which we live. At noon, on the dot (might help to synchronize our watches for this), we’ll all start waving our hands in the air and shouting, “Hoodie-Hoo!”
To help us prepare for this life-changing event, I want everyone to listen to the song in the next video. Learn it. Memorize every word. Cause this is what we’ll all be singing at 12:01.
