Cheese Weasel Day Tomorrow!

April 3rd is Cheese Weasel Day, the day that the cheese weasel leaves cheese at the computer keyboards of all good boys and girls. I first learned of this important holiday via a LiveJournal post from three years ago here; and you can also find out about it here. Then I discovered the webpage at which includes the lyrics to the all-important cheese weasel song, plus a wav file of a woman singing the song so you can pick up the tune.

Of course, gnomi and I have turned this holiday into something for ourselves. Among the stuffed animals and Folkmanis puppets we own is a weasel, and because we're Jewish, we've made sure to give the holiday an appropriate Hebrew name: Yom Samur Hagvinah, which loosely translated means "Day of the Weasel of Cheese."

So make sure to pick up some cheese today, and leave it where a worthy recipient can find it tomorrow.
