Today, January 30, is Yodel For Your Neighbors Day. We are not making this up. We are not sure why it is Yodel For Your Neighbors Day. We also don’t know why it is, at the same time, both National Croissant Day and National Inane Answering Machine Message Day.
The traditional way of celebrating Yodel for Your Neighbors Day, according to Checkiday.com, which apparently is the arbiter of such observances, is to walk around your neighborhood, yodeling. But you didn’t hear that from me.
If seems too extreme, you can celebrate the occasion by watching the Lonely Goatherd yodeling song from the puppet show scene in the Sound of Music.
