Pouting about the return of cold, nasty weather?  Wondering where the 65-degree temps went?

Well, buck up boys and girls.  We have no one to blame but ourselves.

Or am I the only one who missed Hoodie Hoo Day?

It's the same, exciting day, year after year -- Feb. 20.  And on that day, everyone is supposed to run outside and yell, "Hoodie Hoo" and shoo winter away.

Maybe next year
If you feel like putting a little extra "hoodie" into your "hoo" and you feel like wearing a funky hat, colorful stretch pants, vest, and boots (like the obviously fun-loving Hoodie Hoo girls pictured), why, all the better.

Too late for this year, though.

We blew it. And we are suffering for it now.

I dare say forgetting Hoodie Hoo Day is nothing to boast or brag about.

Which brings us to today.

It's Be Humble Day. 

It's also Walking The Dog Day.

So, if you are out walking your dog today in crappy winter weather, struck by the urge to tell passersby that you forgot to yell "Hoodie Hoo", you might want to think twice -- or three times -- before uttering a word lest someone think you are bragging.

Because today is also International World Thinking Day.  A day to ponder. To contemplate. 

You might also want to stop at the store and pick up some treats for the pooch because, guess what?

Tomorrow is International Dog Biscuit Appreciation Day.

Of course, I am marking my calendar for February 27th. No Brainer Day. A day set aside for doing only things are easy, obvious, simple and logical. That is so my day.

Followed by my next favorite, and one of the last, bizarre holidays of the month.

The day it's OK to zzzzz out anywhere
Public Sleeping Day.  February 28th. The one time people expect to see you dozing at your desk, on a park bench or atop the stoop in front of the local tap.

Add a little zing to your zzzzzzzz and wear the Hoodie Hoo duds you didn't get to wear earlier this month. Amused onlookers will thank you.

Happy Holidays!
