Sunday, May 8--

is...the Feast of St. Flora.

Otherwise known as, no joking, Furry Day.

Who's up for a big barbeque type thing at McKinney Falls that Sunday afternoon? :)

Of course, it's also Mother's Day. It would be. I still think it's a good idea...

This site says that St Flora's feastday is Oct. 8th.

Hrmm. Also, how is she the patron saint of furries?

Corruption of the word "Flora." Wacky folk linguistics...

I was wrong about "St. Flora," according to this website, it's just Flora.

I loved the Furry Day carol even before I knew it was the Furry Day Carol :) "We were up, long before the day-o, to welcome in the summertime, welcome in the may-o--Summer is a 'cumin on, and Winter's gone away!"
