Happy WOMbat! Day - October 22nd
Happy WOMbat! Day – October 22nd

Our friends at WOMbania (the first known group of people to celebrate WOMbat Day) have shared with us all the traditions of this holiday.


WOMbat Day is typically celebrated with lots of chocolate and wine gums.  (Since wine gums can be hard to find, feel free to substitute with Ju-Jubes or other gummy candies.)


The highlight of the WOMbat Day is the gathering of friends and loved ones around an evening dinner where WOMbat songs are sung and WOMbat tales are told.  In some areas, a secret WOMbat dance is performed, but the dance has never been officially documented. 


Just before the conclusion of the evening, a chocolate cake in the shape of a WOMbat is served up, along with the wine gums or other gummy candies.  Many times, families will also include sparklers with these festivities.


We here at WOMbeat! wish you a very happy WOMbat Day!
