Wolfenoot - November 23
Thu, Nov 23, 2023


The Wolfenoot holiday is celebrated on November 23 all over the world. It is a date dedicated to beautiful animals – wolves and dogs that have been living side by side with humans for centuries and require our attention and kindness.


Wolfenoot originated quite by accident when a boy told his mother about it. His story soon went viral on social networks and the idea of a fictional holiday quickly captured people’s hearts all over the world. According to the boy, on this date the spirit of the wolf enters people’s homes and distributes gifts to those who have been kind to animals throughout the year. He also mentioned that fried meat and a delicious cake decorated with figurines of the forest, the moon, or wolves should be tasted. However, it is not necessary to follow these recommendations explicitly – vegetarians can cook something to their taste. The most important thing is to feel comfortable and show kindness. All proceeds from Wolfenoot events go to charity!
