I really did wear cat ears all October-long. I got some weird looks when I was waitressing. I guess mountain folk didn’t take a shine to a boy in ears and a collar :p (Although once an old man in a Walmart parking lot ran up to me and said, “Me too!!” in response to my “my cat is my best friend” shirt.)
I also used to wear a Santa hat all December. I like holidays. They help mark the passing of time. I’m sure if I ever live in a place with non-Christian holidays, be they Hindu or Shinto, I will over-enthusiastically participate in those as well. Actually, I kinda want to do that now… “Move to foreign country and out-do the natives at their own holidays.”
I don’t do the cat ear marathon anymore, but I heartily encourage others to participate!
