It’s National Black Cat Appreciation Day!
Today is officially National Black Cat Appreciation Day! Some people can be a little bit superstitious about black cats, which is all the more reason to celebrate how fantastic they are. Black cats are beautiful. And in lots of parts of the world, seeing a black cat can have really positive connotations. Did you know that in Scotland, if a black cat appears on your doorstep, it’s a sign of prosperity? That if you hear a black cat sneeze in Italy, you’re in for good luck? That in some parts of England, people give a black cat as a wedding present to the bride for good luck, and that in Northern Europe, taking in and looking after a black cat will ensure good weather and safe passage on sea voyages?
Three cheers for black cats everywhere!
