Feb. 28 – U.S. Snowshoe Day!
On February 28, we celebrate U.S. Snowshoe Day! This fun and obscure special day is all about honoring a particular item of clothing – the snowshoe – for its ingenuity in allowing people to traverse through the snow. Snowshoes are believed to have originated in Central Asia, and they have been used by Native Americans for centuries. Today, snowshoeing is a popular winter activity for people of all ages, and it’s a great way to get some exercise and enjoy the beauty of the winter landscape. So grab your snowshoes and head outside to celebrate U.S. Snowshoe Day!
