April 1st . . . Or What We Call . . . Balloon Day

Hey pals! It's time for me to tell you another bridge secret. Remember, these are top secret secrets!

Somecat started a tradition a long time ago that April 1st would be designated as Rainbow Bridge Day. You can read what Cisco Kid says about this special day here in the forum.

Basically, it's a day for your family to remember all their pets that have journeyed to the bridge. The idea is for them to write a special letter or poem to them and send it up inside a helium balloon.

So, now, here is the secret I promised to tell you. April 1st might be Rainbow Bridge Day for those on earth, but up here we call it Balloon Day!

Balloon Day starts out early where we all gather together to collect the gazillion balloons that are floating up to the bridge. The girls like to separate them by color. They count all the balloons and whatever color wins becomes the color for the month of April. We do all kinds of special stuff using the winning color in April. I'll have to share more of those secrets with you later in the month.

Then the fun part happens - we get to use our claws and pop all the balloons! Wowza, you talk about fireworks! It is so noisy up here it probably sounds like thunder down on earth. We all laugh together and then gather all the notes and poems.

Then during dinner tonight, the Balloon Committee will read all the notes and poems. It's pretty sappy and some of the girls cry, but it turns out to be a pawsome celebration of our time on earth.

So, Happy April 1st . . . . . Rainbow Bridge Day . . . . . Balloon Day . . . . . April Fool's Day . . . . .
