All across the country at 8 PM, Angelenos are joining people across the country who are standing outside and howling like wolves. Sometimes fireworks and air horns are added to the din. The ritual was begun last week by a Colorado Facebook group promoting the Howling as catharsis and a way to connect with each other during isolation.
People have started using The Howling as a way to pay tribute to our medical personnel and first responders. Touching and heartbreaking comments are showing up in the group, like “Howling for my wife tonight lost her a week ago.”
