This is a holiday that celebrates snakes of all kinds. Many people are afraid of snakes, and they have been associated with evil and betrayal by many cultures throughout history. But most snakes are not venomous and pose no threat to humans, so fear of them isn't necessary at all. In fact, there are a lot of benefits having snakes around your house. They can help keep bugs and other pests under control! Celebrate this holiday by visiting snakes at your local zoo, or if you've always wanted to have a snake of your own, today might be the day to get one!
