Southern Hemisphere Hoodie-Hoo Day Date in the current year: August 22, 2016

Southern Hemisphere Hoodie-Hoo Day There are many bizarre holidays, and Hoodie-Hoo Day on August 22 is one of them. This holiday originates from the alike event, celebrated on February 20 in Northern Hemisphere, and this one was created only for people, who live in Southern Hemisphere.

Hoodie-Hoo Day was made up by the folks at, who felt like nothing to celebrate. They decided to make a special ritual for the people, who are sick and tired of winter and would like to chase it away. And since August is the last winter month in Southern Hemisphere, this holiday is perfect for people in South America, Africa and Australia.

What should you do on Hoodie-Hoo Day to chase winter away? Go outside at noon (your local time) raise your heads above head and shout “Hoodie-Hoo”. That's enough to cheer you up for a long winter day (and even month), because you know, that you've performed a special ritual welcoming spring.

And do you known, where does the word “Hoodie-Hoo” originate from? Ironically, it was first heard on the TV show The Andy Griffith Show. This is a greeting word of “How are you?”, in talking country lingo.
