Happy World Snake Day!
Celebrate anyway you want, but please don’t celebrate at my house.
The New York Times (via the Texas tribune) posted an entertaining article about the Texas roadside attraction and pop culture icon, The Snake Farm. “Snake Farm’s Charms Still Casting Spells.”
I made another half-hearted effort last night to get to the roots of World Snake Day but ended up back here in my 2005 archives that linked to the last time I tried to figure out who declared July 16 World Snake Day. Someday I’ll expend the extra hour and get to the bottom of this holiday. In the meantime, I say just go have a drink and toast the serpent world. It’s not a group of creatures you want to have pissed off at you. (Hissed off?)
