Marmot Day celebrates marmots. This is a celebration of large squirrel-like animals, including groundhogs and woodchucks. These animals are all around the globe, from Canada to Mexico to India to Russia to India. However, they don’t get the attention that they deserve. Marmot Day was created in 2002 to honor these fascinating creatures.
Marmot Day celebrations can take many forms. Marmot Day in Alaska is an official holiday. It typically involves a family meal where jokes and anecdotes about marmots are shared. Owosso, Michigan hosts a Marmot Day Festival that offers many family activities as well as a marmot video contest.
You want to celebrate Marmot Day but you can’t travel to Alaska or Michigan. You don’t have to miss Marmot Day. You can go marmot-watching if you live close to marmot habitats. If not, you can research marmots online and buy a stuffed marmot.
