If you’re not out on the beach on this hot summer day, building sand castles, why not camp out in your own backyard and build a scarecrow?! July 1st is National “Build a Scarecrow” Day, so you’ll be in very good company!
Did you know the earliest scarecrows date back to the time of the ancient Egyptians, who lined the banks of the Nile River with clothed figures to scare away the quails from devouring their wheat crops?
Then there are the ancient Japanese farmers who wanted to save their rice fields from predators by tying old rags, meat and fish bones to bamboo poles and setting them ablaze. The flames and the wretched smell were enough to scare off any living thing. One can only can imagine.
It’s also the ancient Japanese who described the lowly scarecrow so poetically as “one who cannot walk, but knows everything of the world.”
