Seven-Year-Old Boy Invents Wolf Holiday and People Are Already Onboard

Wolfenoot is a brand-new holiday created by a 7-year old boy in New Zealand. According to his mother, author Jax Goss, Wolfenoot is “when the Spirit of the Wolf brings and hides small gifts around the house for everyone.” As for where the idea for the new holiday came from, Goss says, with a laugh: “I asked him this. He said, ‘It came from my brain’. So that’s helpful.” She does add that he loves animals of all kinds and has been exposed to conservation ideas thanks to her work at New Zealand’s Hamilton Zoo. According to her son, the holiday is celebrated by eating roast meat, because that is what wolves eat (although vegetarians can celebrate, too) and by baking a cake decorated to look like a full moon. The holiday is celebrated on November 23rd to mark “the anniversary of ‘The Great Wolf’s Death.” http://time.com/5412557/wolfnoote-reactions/
