Here’s another funny holiday we’d celebrate if only we were aware…
According to holidayinsights.com… Christy Hargrove from Asheville, North Carolina started Squirrel Appreciation Day on January 21, 2001. She is a wildlife rehabilitator and is affiliated with the Western North Carolina Nature Center. It was created to encourage folks to take care of these animals during the depths of winter when food is scarce.
There’s a guide to Squirrel Appreciation Day activities at eHow – it includes:
1. Check local television listings for documentaries about squirrels. The National Geographic Channel and Animal Planet are likely to have a special presentation.
2. Look out your window. Squirrels are everywhere. What can you learn about squirrels just by watching them in your own backyard?

You probably won’t find any official events scheduled for Squirrel Appreciation Day (that I’m aware of), but you can help celebrate by putting out extra food or learning something new about the furry little creatures. So, tomorrow, be sure and wish all your fellow squirrel lovers a Happy Squirrel Appreciation Day!
Until next time…
