A South African expat mom’s seven-year old son has invented a brand new international holiday.

South African author Jax Goss, now living with her seven-year old son in New Zealand, has cause to be extremely proud of her dog-loving boy as he’s invented a new international holiday. Wolfenoot is a one-day festival especially for dog-lovers the world over, and has gone viral since she posted his idea online. The holiday celebrates the ‘spirit of the wolf’ and is aimed at global dog owners and dog lovers.

It’s already been publicised via articles in Time, Boing Boing and Buzzfeed, and looks to become a reality for the international online community. According to Jax’s talented little boy, the Spirit of the Wolf hides small gifts for everyone in every home where there’s a dog or dogs, and even in homes where people are kind to dogs even although they don’t own one themselves. Everyone who has, or has had, or is kind to man’s best friends receive better gifts than do those who’re just thinking about being kind to dogs. During the day’s celebrations, roast meat take pride of place on the dinner table as wolves in their natural state eat meat, and cakes shaped like full moons are baked.

Wolfenoot is due for its first celebration on 23rd November and has its own Facebook invite page, with over 6,000 people saying they’ll celebrate the new holiday. It also has its own website, with fascinating FAQs and answers, and Jax is asking those taking part to send pics she can show to her son as an illustration of how far his dream has travelled. The bright little boy’s mom is working at Hamilton Zoo in New Zealand, and believes her job has exposed the boy to conservation ideas and a love for all animals, not just dogs. He’s especially thrilled that some people are planning to celebrate Wolfenoot in a way which will raise funds for wolf sanctuaries and dog shelters.
