Howl At The Moon Day is celebrated annually on October 26th of every year. Have you ever tried to howl like a wolf? If not, then it’s a day for you to howl and say hello to the moon. Turn up your heads and start yours. There is no evidence for what reason this day has been observed. Possibly, we could assume that the day encourages the people to go out and howl at the moon like a wolf.
“When you hear that howl alone at night in the forest, it’s one of the most frightening sounds you’ll ever hear.” – Tim Cope
History of Howl At The Moon Day
The history and origin of this day date back to 2009. On April 26, 2009, Umbrella Books Founder Johnny DePalma created this day. Earlier, it was called The Planet Wide Moon Howl Event. The celebration of the day lets you try howl at the moon just like the wolf does. The wolf is a powerful symbol of mythology. One could hear the howling sound when going out for an outdoor visit. We also would have seen the pictures of the wolf howling at the moon. Truly, this howling of the wolf has no connection with the moon. A wolf is a nocturnal animal that howls to communicate with its mates. There is another mythical relationship between wolf and moon as Werewolves. It is called in the name of lycanthropes. Werewolves are humans who have the capacity to mutate into a wolf or wolf-like being during a full moon day.
