Hoodie Hoo Day brings out sunshine and celebrants

Thursday, March 1, 2018 by BEVERLY SPRINGER in Local News

A group of residents of the Meadows Apartments in Emmaus and their friends spent Feb. 20 observing Hoodie Hoo Day. This year’s activities were expanded to include several surprises.

“Hoodie Hoo,” which occurs one month before the official start of spring, is a tongue in cheek celebration intended to drive away winter and lift the spirits.

Like “Jingle Bells,” “America the Beautiful” and “Here Comes Peter Cottontail,” songs long associated with seasonal celebrations, the “Hoodie Hoo Marching Song” has become the holiday’s newly adopted anthem.
