Who is Hoodie-Hoo?

Or, more specifically what is Hoodie-Hoo.  (Other than a quintessential example of an odd holiday.) 

First, the bad news.  After a bit of research, The Daily Cupcake cannot explain who the Hoos are or what makes them so Hoodie, but the good news is that we can explain the idea behind the “holiday.” 

Today is for all of those tired of a sunless winter with its endless supply of snow, ice and sleet.  At noon local time, the winter weary are to go outside, wave their hands in the air and chant, “Hoodie-Hoo!”  The idea being that a good “hoodie-hoo” chant will chase away Winter and tempt Spring to bring on warmer temps. 

Seriously.

It’s a copyrighted holiday.

It’s only a matter of time before it is given its own symbol, candy (gumdrops!?) and line of greeting cards.

Since it is currently a balmy 72 degrees here–and TDC staff thinks 82 borders on unbearably hot–we will abstain from today’s ceremony.  In fact, we would like to request a slight variation of today’s proceedings.

If you of the Frozen North would please wave your hands in the air, pointing the delicious cold to the south (specifically towards Central Texas lest Louisiana accidentally gets the cold front), we would greatly appreciate it. 

Tomorrow’s high is 80.  February.  80.  Yeesh.

One thought on “Who is Hoodie-Hoo?

  1. I’m with you on this one. Any temp above about 75 degrees begins to make me nervous (and a bit sweaty). I am already dreading summer. We went from wind chills of -15 to 85 degrees in about a week. Can anyone say, “I think I’m coming down with something?” All of you warm weather temp-weenies keep your “hoodie-hoos” to yourself!!!
