So,  here we are again ramping up for another festive season of Cheese Weasel Day. This year we want to ask you to do something big for CWD. Do you know anyone who can help us spread the news about CWD? With all the support we’ve gotten over the years we know there are our the faithful few who “gird their curds” each year and spread their gratitude with others. Take for example some new art (right) that was posted last year by PsychoAngel51402 

We are so thankful for those who are keeping the holiday alive. But ask not what the Cheese Weasel can do for you, ask what you can do for the Cheese Weasel. Is there someone out there you know who can help us spread the word?  Please tell them about CWD before April 3rd. Every year we hear people say, “Man, I wish I knew about this earlier, I could have helped”

Okay, here’s your one month notice! Tell someone today about CWD and ask if they’d help spread the word. Even if you just post a blog it can help us raise awareness! Follow us on Twitter @CheeseWeaselDay and give us a shout out about what you’re doing.

What is Cheese Weasel Day You Ask?

April 3rd is Cheese Weasel Day (CWD) and is the only Internet holiday. A quick web search shows CWD started around 1993. CWD is traditionally celebrated as a fun day dedicated to appreciating people who work in the tech industry.  Legend has it (and the internet has many legends) that the Cheese Weasel travels the world on April 3rd, leaving a bit of cheese under keyboards or mouse pads of good techie boys and girls

Here are a few ways you can celebrate Cheese Weasel Day 2012:

  • Arrange secretly for a slice of cheese to be placed under the mouse pad of a tech person you know and appreciate.
  • Plan a Cheese Weasel Day party with all the trimmings.  Melt fondue, make grilled cheese sandwiches, eat nachos, anything cheesy works.
  • Send a link to the Cheese Weasel Song and learn it so you can use it at your own CWD celebration.
  • Give your favorite tech person a Thank You shout out on Twitter using the hash tags #cheeseweaselday
