07 Dec Wolfenoot
Created by the son of Jax Goot, who was 7 at the time and is now often known as the Wolfenoot Kid, Wolfnoot is a “celebration of canines, kindness, and humans who embrace both.” Showing kindness to animals, especially to wolves and dogs, is an important part of the day. It takes place on November 23 because that is the anniversary of the death of the “Great Wolf.” Those who celebrate the day are known as Wolfenati. The Wolfenoot Kid, who resides in Hamilton, New Zealand, told his idea for the day to his mother, who posted about it on Facebook. It gained traction there and elsewhere online, and by the time of its first observance, in 2018, it was known around the world.
In her Facebook post, Jax Goot shared some of the Wolfenoot Kid’s ideas about the holiday. The Spirit of the Wolf brings and hides small gifts around the house for everyone. Those “who have, have had, or are kind to dogs get better gifts than everyone else.” According to the post, roast meat is eaten, because that is what wolves eat; cake decorated like a full moon is eaten as well. Besides the guidelines outlined on Facebook, another important component of the day is the act of donating to dog and wolf organizations, such as shelters, sanctuaries, and charities. (Checkiday)
No Hate Only Snootboops
Wolfenoot was created by my 7 year old son. I thought, “What a cool idea” and posted about it on Facebook, as I do many of his cool ideas. A couple of my friends asked me to make it public. It exploded. I made an event at a request. Then I tweeted about it and everything went crazy.
This was my original post:
My son has invented a holiday called Wolfenoot.
It is when the Spirit of the Wolf brings and hides small gifts around the house for everyone. People who have, have had, or are kind to dogs get better gifts than anyone else.
You eat roast meat (because wolves eat meat) and cake decorated like a full moon.
A holiday to the spirit of wolves that celebrates people who are kind to dogs? I can 100% get behind this. So we will be celebrating Wolfenoot. It’s on the 23rd November if anyone else is moved to celebrate it.
If you do, please post pics, so he can see how his idea has spread.
If you’re posting publicly about it, use #wolfenoot.
If you’re a new fan, welcome to the Wolfenati.
Take a look at our news feed to see some of what has happened.

I would love, eventually, to be able to run Wolfenoot like a fully fledged non-profit organisation. I have started making moves towards this, but it all costs time and money. By supporting the Patreon, you are supporting the work that I do towards this goal.
If you’d just like to thank me for the time and energy I pour into this thing, you can buy me a coffee.
