Howl At The Moon Day has been 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 a 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 Howl At The Moon 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 the Howl At The Moon Day date back to 2009. On April 26, 2009, Umbrelly Books Founder, Johnny DePalma created the Howl At The Moon Day (Earlier, it was called as The Planet Wide Moon Howl Event). The celebration of the day lets you try howl at the moon just like the wolf does. Wolf is the powerful symbol of mythology. One could have heard the howling sound when gone out for the 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. Wolf is a nocturnal animal that howls to communicate with its mates. There is one another mythical relationship between wolf and moon as Werewolves. It is called in the name of lycanthropes. Werewolves are the humans who have the capacity to mutate into a wolf or wolf-like being during a full moon day.
