You’ve felt the visceral compulsion many times, like Lon Chaney with an itchy beard. When the night is clear and the moon is full, filling the night sky with its translucent glow, it touches the core of your soul. Which brings us to
NATIONAL HOWL AT THE MOON DAY!
Why should our canine brethren have all the fun?
Have they ever sent one of their own to the moon just for the hell of it? Luna has been mankind’s fascination ever since fascination was invented, her every move across the sky closely observed and charted.
The moon has been taking our breath away forever and, until 1969, hers was an elusive, unattainable beauty.
Her gravity moves our vast oceans every single day, defines the earth’s rotation and orbit around the sun, and raises and lowers the “tides” in our own water-filled bodies.
Is it any wonder that primitive man worshipped the Moon as a God, or stories of the Man in The Moon are common to every society, or why Michael Jackson invented the Moonwalk? The Moon is there for you every night, and today we howl our appreciation.
