Feb. 20 is Hoodie-Hoo Day, when residents of the Northern Hemisphere, tired of winter, step outside at noon, wave their hands over their heads and yell “Hoodie Hoo!”

No, we’re not joking. It’s a copyrighted holiday, created and maintained by the folks from, who also bring such February holidays as For the Love of Mike Day (Feb. 22) and For Pete’s Sake Day (Feb. 26).

The purpose of Northern Hemisphere Hoodie-Hoo Day, as it is properly termed, is to “chase winter and make ready for spring,” which is exactly one month away.

So step outside, wave your hands over your head, and yell “hoodie hoo!” We might abstain, though – we’re a little bummed we missed Wave All Your Fingers at Your Neighbors Day on Feb. 7.
