*third Saturday in June
Hollerin‘ is one of the oldest methods of long distance communication. In today’s environment of cell phones, internet, and other long distance technology, National Hollerin’ Day encourages everyone to rediscover the ability to holler.
The day is named after the National Hollerin’ Contest, held every year in the small town of Spivey’s Corner, North Carolina, where several thousand people meet every year to participate in one of five hollerin’ contests.
The three companies blew the trumpets and smashed the jars. Grasping the torches in their left hands and holding in their right hands the trumpets they were to blow, they shouted, “A swordfor the Lord and for Gideon!”
