Northern 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 Northern Hemisphere, spring usually begins on March 20, but can start on March 19 or March 21. Thus, the holiday is celebrated about month before the end of winter. A Southern Hemisphere counterpart is celebrated on August 22, about a month before the start of spring in that hemisphere.
How to Observe
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 Northern Hemisphere, it can't hurt to go outside and yell "hoodie-hoo" if you live in the Southern Hemisphere as well. Although, if you help speed up the arrival of spring up north, you are only speeding up the arrival of cold weather in your own hemisphere!
