Happy Wolfenoot!

Some time ago, I wrote about non-Sabbath holidays: special days we celebrate other than the 8 observances of the Wheel of the Year. These can be anything we find meaningful, whimsical, or important to remember.

This year, a 7-year-old boy invented Wolfenoot, a holiday about wolves and dogs. The concept is simple: on Wolfenoot…


It is when the Spirit of the Wolf brings and hides small gifts around the house for everyone. People who have, have had, or are kind to dogs get better gifts than anyone else. You eat roast meat (because wolves eat meat) and cake decorated like a full moon.

From the Wolfenoot website

Adorable, right? This concept has caught fire on the Internet and seems likely to join “viral holidays” like Festivus, International Talk Like a Pirate Day and Pi Day. It’s a classic example of how lightning-quickly culture can be created in the era of the Internet.

So I commend it to you–November 23, Wolfenoot! A far better observance than, say the consumeristic frenzy of “Black Friday”.

AROOOOOOOOOOOOOOOoooooooooo!
