I am so glad you enjoyed the WurstFest yesterday! I saw Zach dancing on the table! Mama was too! MOL You may find it interesting to know the activity was inspired by a real-life event taking place in New Braunfels, Texas this week!
A special big THANK YOU to Josie Mae for setting up a special tent with cocoa and hearty soups for the angels who were spending the day on the east coast, hovering and comforting those affected by the snow on top of the devastation of the storm last week.
^~^ Sadie Hawkins Dance! ^~^
"When ah fires [my gun], all o' yo' kin start a-runnin! When ah fires agin—after givin' yo' a fair start—Sadie starts a runnin'” ^~^ from Al Capp’s classic hillbilly comic strip Li’l Abner (1934-1978).
Sadie was the “homeliest gal in them hills” and her father frantically called together all the unmarried men of Dogpatch and declared “Sadie Hawkins Day” with Sadie in hot pursuit of the eligible bachelors.
The Sadie Hawkins Day was first mentioned in the November 15, 1937 comic strip and the race actually took place between November 19 and November 30.
Due to its enormous popularity, Capp continued it as an annual event for 40 years. LIFE magazine reported over 200 colleges holding Sadie Hawkins Day events in 1939, only 2 years following the initial mention in the popular comic strip. The idea of women asking men to a dance captured the popular imagination of young people, and continues to be an American folk event. It is now observed in Canada as well.
Thanks Wikipedia and Lil-Abner.com!
We will be holding our Sadie Hawkins Dance tonight; a little early, since the Saturday after Nov 9, we will be traveling….
All of the girl kitties are encouraged to take the bold initiative and invite the tomcat of your choice to take a spin around the dance floor! You will hear some super fiddlin’ tunes purrformed by the Charlie Catdaniels Band. We have a buffet table set up with hearty hamster chili, catnip chips with guacamole and we have a keg of catnip ale and plenty of sparkling fruit punch. I don’t imagine anyone will be spiking the punch with moonshine, do you?
