Today is Frog Jumping Day [VIDEO]
First, let me start out by saying Happy Mother’s Day to all the mothers out there. Yes, today is Mother’s Day, but it’s also another day for celebration–it’s Frog Jumping Day. As I write this, I think what a fitting holiday for the one and only Big Frog 104. Now, I couldn’t find much on how to properly celebrate this holiday, so, I say, celebrate by listening to the Best and Most Country Big Frog 104!
According to HolidayInsights.com,
“The roots of Frog Jumping Day go back to Mark Twain’s first short story. It was first published in 1865 as “Jim Smiley and His Jumping Frog”. Later, he published it as “The Celebrated Jumping Frog of Calaveras County”. It is also known under a third title “The Notorious Jumping Frog of Calaveras County”.
So, in honor of Frog Jumping Day, I’d like to share one of my favorite Sesame Street moments with Kermit the Frog and Cookie Monster.
