I wanted to get this article up before March 1. I'm ashamed to say I didn't know about this day until I started doing research.

What is the translation of "Whuppity Scoorie?"

Well - Happy Whuppity Scoorie Day everyone!

That is neat. I like the idea of "tapping the earth to wake Mother Nature"....

Some say it comes from penitents being whipped (whuppity) and then cleansed (scoured) in the river.
