Southern Hemisphere Hoodie Hoo Day

Founded by renowned holiday creators Thomas and Ruth Roy of Wellcat Holidays, this holiday was made to help chase away winter and usher in spring. In the Southern Hemisphere, which makes up almost a third of the earth's land, spring begins on September 22 or 23. Thus, the holiday is celebrated a month before the end of the season. A Northern Hemisphere counterpart is celebrated around February 20, a month before the start of spring in that hemisphere.

How to Observe Southern Hemisphere Hoodie Hoo Day

The day is celebrated by going outside at noon and yelling "hoodie-hoo". This is done to chase away winter and make way for spring. Although this holiday is specifically for those in the Southern Hemisphere, it can't hurt to go outside and yell "hoodie-hoo" if you live in the Northern Hemisphere as well. Although, if you help speed up the arrival of spring down south, you are only speeding up the arrival of cold weather in your own hemisphere!
