Woolfenoot is a holiday created by Jax Goss and their 7 year old son, celebrated on the 23rd of November. I think the Goss’ had the right idea, because in this time of darkness we all need a little light and snoot boops. There is something so very pure about a holiday celebrating dogs.
Obviously, I love dogs. I love my two enough to take them on an international and intercontinental adventure (they’re adapting fine and love the heated floor in our new home). But dogs play a role in many magickal traditions and myths. I personally suspect this is because they were the first domesticated animals and we share a unique and strong evolutionary bond with them. From the celestial Bul-gae, Aralez, and Raiju to the guardians of the Underword Anubis, Cerebus, Xolotl and Black Dogs to the hardworking Sarama to the chaotic bois Fenrir, Pan Hu, and the Cadejos; our magickal, mythical, astral, and physical realities have dogs running around. My own magickal practice (again, obviously) involves doggos too.
So, from my good dogs to yours and from me to you, have a Happy Wolfenoot.
