Feast of Fabulous Wild Men Day

Feast of Fabulous Wild Men Day is an annual celebration dedicated to “wild men”. Celebrated every year on January 12th. This is a rather cheerful and unusual holiday, which can be understood in different ways.


The history of Feast of Fabulous Wild Men Day is not known for certain. It is believed that this holiday was created as a tribute to the mythological past of the world. Studying the legends and tales of peoples, one can often come across descriptions of savages. Most often they are drawn as strong men in shabby clothes and strong vegetation on the chest and body. So, during the Middle Ages they were called “woodwose” in Europe. Savages settled most often in dense forests, where they could easily find food and feel safe enough.

Today, the image of a savage is popular at various festivals and other events dedicated to mythology or fantasy. In the modern world, the image of a wild man is attributed to self-confident individuals who directly follow their goals and do not pay attention to those who say that they will not succeed or they are not worthy of more.

Interesting facts

  • In the modern world, truly wild tribes have survived. For example, the Sentinelese. They live on a small island with dense vegetation, which actually belongs to India. However, the authorities do not interfere in the life of the indigenous population. The tribe is about 1500 people. They lead an almost primitive way of life, being engaged in gathering.
  • According to scientists, modern men and women are much weaker than their primitive ancestors. Today, people do not need to survive in dangerous conditions, and most of the time is spent on solving intellectual problems.
