Hoodie Hoo Day is on February 20. If you are sick of the heaters, coats-on-sweaters, red noses, and boots, mark the end of winter with fun as you join your community to say goodbye to winter. Spring is a beautiful season of the year that we always look forward to. We cannot wait for winter to end, so we shout Hoodie Hoo on Hoodie Hoo Day.
History of Hoodie Hoo Day
Hoodie Hoo Day was established by the owners of Wellcat, and is set on a day exactly a month before spring.
On Hoodie Hoo Day, people in the community gather in a place at noon, wave their hands and shout, “Hoodie Hoo!” to say goodbye to winter and welcome to spring.
Spring is a beautiful season where flowers bloom, the sun is warm and pleasant, children grow faster, and animals give birth.
However, it has its downside. More tornadoes occur during spring than in any other season of the year. It is also a season where diseases spread faster, and is considered a bad time to have children.
Nevertheless, we cannot help but look forward to feeling the warm sun on our faces and the cool breeze blowing through hair.
Spring is a special season in many places, as Hoodie Hoo Day is celebrated in other ways in different places. For example, people gather to burn an effigy and throw it in a river to welcome spring and bid winter farewell in Poland. But this is done on the first day of spring.
This shows how excited we are to move on from dull ol’ winter and embrace the pleasant warmth of spring.
We are not sure whether Hoodie Hoo really works, but it is a great way to bid the winter goodbye and get ready to have the best spring yet.
After shouting Hoodie Hoo, we go home to hot cups of tea, cuddle, eat, and do something fun like getting our closets ready for spring outfits, getting flower seeds to plant, and making plans for spring.
And if you ever wonder what Hoodie Hoo means, we are not sure either. But, it was first used in the Andy Griffith show, meaning “How are you?” in country slang.
