Squirrel Appreciation Day Is Almost Here

I’ve posted this photo before.  I can’t remember this guy’s name, but he’s some sort of international trendsetter.  I should know it because I’m a trendsetter, too.  We’re both members of the same club.

Anyway, I’ve been extolling the virtues of Squirrel Appreciation Day on January 21 for a few years now.  So this year I decided to Google the event just to see if the holiday has caught on.  The first three entries to pop up are articles in “The Washington Post,discovery.com and “The Huffington Post,” all from 2012. Squirrel Appreciation Day was huge last year!

I’m glad that it is getting the attention that it deserves.  If it wasn’t for trailblazers like me and whatshisface in the photo, the day could be overshadowed by competing events, like National Pie Day on January 23. Yes, I do like pie nearly as much as I like squirrels, but it’s probably time that someone stood up and said “enough is enough” with all of these ridiculous holidays and observances.  Do we really need an Easter?

But I digress!  Squirrel Appreciation Day is only nine days away and I need to prepare.  First things first — what am I going to do with my nuts?
