Please Hoodie Hoo this Feb 20th!

I know what you’re thinking….What’s Hoodie Hoo Day? It is a holiday celebrated in the Northern Hemisphere on February 20. 

This observance has an interesting hook. It’s filled with hoopla and causes a real hoop-de-doo. It’ll have you dancin’ a hootchie-kootchie as if you were hoofin’ it at a hootenanny!

Ready for Spring? We are!

Seriously, Hoodie Hoo Day is an invitation to Spring. In an effort to chase away the Winter blues and get Spring to feel welcome, folks dress in warm weather gear, step outside at high noon, wave their hands overhead and yell “Hoooooooodie Hoooooooo!”. Even if you don’t give a hoot about Spring or think that this sounds like a lot of hooey, by hook or by crook get yourself outside at high noon on Feb 20th!  We need you too! The Claiborne House Bed and Breakfast had snow berms in our parking lot ten feet tall last year on Hoodie Hoo Day!  HOODIE HOO! PLEASE.

At this time of year, most people are eager to see the snow melt and sun shine again. 

Be gone dry skin, be gone lethargy!

Enough shoveling, bring on the Spring!
Don’t be a hooligan and play hookey to join the hoodie hoo at high noon on Feb 20th! So, whether you’re a Hoosier, a hoodlum or Hootie and the Blowfish, throw on your favorite hoodie and hoof it on outside at high noon.  Be encouraged to step outside, wave your arms overhead and bid farewell to Winter with a hardy “Hoooooodie Hoooooooo!”. 

It would behoove you to join in the hoopla.  Do it for this man in the photos - this is your innkeeper Tony who is fed up with cold weather!  Yes that is him clearing the ice off the windscreen with a machete - and then a shovel yes, he has the fever bad!  This is not Buffalo NY, what the heck!
