This festival is celebrated on October 27th and is called National Black Cat Day. Throughout history, black cats have had a bad reputation. They are related to everything, from simple doom to witches and satans. In the United States, they are considered very unfortunate and one of the most unlikely cats to be adopted. Considering that black cats are not more “evil” than any other color cats, this is very unfortunate. Fortunately, a holiday has been created to help restore their image and make them regain the favor of the public. Since this holiday is celebrated four days before Halloween, we believe this is the best time to appreciate our black cat friends.
History of National Black Cat Day
At a certain point in time, we are not sure who started this holiday, nor when it started. However, the situation has changed recently because we discovered that this holiday was actually initiated by an animal charity called Cats protection in the UK. The organization was established this holiday to raise awareness of the difficulty of adopting black cats. We are not sure when they invented this holiday, but we know it has been around for several years.
Since we are talking about the history of National Black Cat Day, we think we will also talk about the history of attitudes towards these cats. Black cats are treated differently according to the year and location they live. For example, in the UK and Japan, black cats are considered good luck. However, in the United States, it has become a symbol of doom or evil forces. In some parts of the world, if a black cat crosses your path, it is considered a bad omen. In folklore, black cats are often portrayed as evil agents, or even evil itself. In some parts of Europe, they are considered so evil that their superstitious villagers burned alive in a huge bonfire in midsummer.
