Boxers 'n' Briefs: What the Heck IS It?

Happy Friday, Letterboxers!
Ok, since I didn't really have a good title or intro for today's BnB, I thought I would take the easy way out. I looked up one of those "Unusual Holidays" calendars, to see what sort of silliness today held, and see what I could do with it. Imagine my surprise when I saw that today, January 26th, is the... are you ready for this?... "Toad Hollow Day of Encouragement".

Say it out loud, I dare you... Toad Hollow Day of Encouragement. Okay, it definitely meets my criteria for "humorous sounding." But...what IS it? What does it mean? What are we celebrating, and HOW? Google time!

But alas... after several pages of entries, I found MANY references to the fact that today IS "Toad Hollow Day of Encouragement," but no actual explanation of WHY Toad Hollow and WHAT we are to Encourage. Can somebody PLEASE help me? I need to know. If ANYBODY out there can tell me what this holiday is all about (or can make something up that sounds plausible, I'm not picky), then please let me know! Leave a message on the blog, AQ mail me, or post on whatever turns out to be the appropriate AQ Board. My sanity is in your hands. Such as it is.

And now, the week:

1) It's almost like a Random Word Generator!

2) Lady and the Tramper.

3) Sew what? <----- winner of this week's "lamest pun" award

4) The Treachery of Stamped Images

5) I can neither confirm nor deny...

6) The Sprite on a Soapbox (what MORE do you need to know?)

7) Now YOU can have a Silent Partner.

8) A Star is born. Well, carved, actually.

9) Wait a minute... can we go back to that "moose" part again?

10) Monkey see, monkey do... but which is the monkey?

11) Supplies in demand

12) The official policy is that there is no official policy...

13) Sometimes a cigar is just a cigar.

14) This kid has his priorities straight.

15) Our thoughts an prayers for you, teekasue.

And that pretty much wraps up the week. Except for the "Toad Hollow Day of Encouragement" part, of course...

This is only my version of what this means. There is actually a place called Toad Hollow. They actually built underground tunnels for the toads so they didn't get sqished in the streets. They also build toad houses for them. So maybe on this day the town encourages all to do something for the toads. This is only a guess as I couldn't find anything either. But here's an interesting link for you all:

Well...all I can say is: A "Hollow Toad" would be a heck of place to hide a letterbox.
