Happy Furry Day!
The town of Helston in Cornwall, England celebrates May 8 as Furry Day.
So strict is the observance of this day as a general holiday, that should any person be found at work, he is instantly seized , set astride on a pole, and hurried on men?s shoulders to the river, which he is sentenced to leap over a wide place, which he, of course, fails in attempting, and leaps into the water. A small contribution towards the good cheer of the day easily compounds for the leap.
So, what are you doing for Furry Day?
