SOME BUT HEI: CAT'S DAY IN JAPAN
For 30 years now, February 22 has been Cat Day in Japan. This number was chosen for a reason. According to Japanese tradition, the date is written as follows: 22.2. Two are pronounced “neither” and “meow” in Japanese is “nanny”. Since these words are consonant, February 22 became “nyan-nyan-nyan” or “meow-meow-meow” in the afternoon.
Although this is an unofficial holiday, Cat's Day is celebrated on a grand scale. This is largely due to the love of the Japanese for tailed, because here their number per capita is one of the highest in the world. It was from Japan that the kotokafe and animal-oriented architecture came to us. In addition, in recent years, the holiday has become highly commercialized. Themed goods, food and drinks are sold on this day.
What is Cat Day? On this holiday, it is customary to bestow fluffy bros with love and gifts. Many post photos and videos of their pets to the network. Some arrange pranks for their four-legged. Themed food and drinks, especially donuts, are popular.
This holiday is not complete without cosplay so popular in Asia. You can dress up your four-legged friend or you can become a "cat" yourself.
And the Disney store in Japan announced February 22 as Marie's day - a kitten from the cartoon Aristocratic Cats.
It is curious that on February 22 in Japan, another holiday is celebrated - Ninja Day. A play on words is also involved here: two - “neither” and the first syllable of the word “ninja” are also consonant.
