FURRY FRIDAY: Lumberjack Day

Lumberjack Day is held annually on September 26th to recognize and celebrate lumberjacks, though it recognizes them more in the folklore and symbolism rather than the actual woodcutting profession. Nowadays, modern lumberjacks and loggers rely mostly on machinery and their careers in woodcutting are usually unstable, pay poorly, and are extremely dangerous.

Lumberjacks have a long history of representing masculinity, strength, and hard work (second only, perhaps, to cowboys as American heroes) and this Furry Friday looks to show that with our selection of photographs. Lumberjack Day traditions typically include dressing up as a lumberjack, eating flapjacks, and, even jokingly, singing the famous “Lumberjack Song” from Monty Python.

🎶🎵 I’m a lumberjack and I’m OK
I sleep all night, I work all day….

Have a happy Lumberjack Day, enjoy these pictures and vote for your favorite(s)!
