Reader, as you may or may not know, today is International Crow and Raven Appreciation Day.
Wait, let us rephrase that—as you definitely do not know, today is International Crow and Raven Appreciation Day. As far as we can tell, it was essentially proclaimed as such by four Canadians via the Facebooks. In fact, if you do a Web search for International Crow and Raven Appreciation Day—ICRAD for those in the know—you pretty much just find the Facebook page. And our blog.
ALAS! We have never been ones to shy away from celebration or question potential problems pertaining to proper registration of international holidays. ESPECIALLY when they involve ravens and crows, who not only serve as our company's namesake, but also fascinate us personally and visually.
So raise your glass of dark, dark, beer, reader; tip your chapeau noir in reverence, friend; and don that slightly creepy crow mask to freak out your neighbors as we all toast these covetable corvids!
