Here at Holiday World, we make merry on more holidays than just Christmas, Halloween, 4th of July, and Thanksgiving.

For example, today we paws to celebrate “Dress Up Your Pet Day”!

Those who have pets understand it when I say they are part of our families. They eat with us, travel with us, and are even dressed in clothes from their own wardrobe. The only difference is they have fur.

One thing I’ve learned from having pets of my own – those who have them love to talk about them!

Speaking from experience, I never hesitate at the chance to show off a photo of my dog, Dasher.

Here he is sporting his favorite Indiana Hoosiers shirt:


In celebration of Dress Up Your Pet Day, we invited our staff to share photos of their pets wearing their finest.

Meet VP Lori’s Elphie and Lauren from Entertainment/Event’s Edgar. (He is named after Edgar Allan Poe, author of “The Raven,” and the inspiration for the theme of Lauren’s “sister coaster,” The Raven.)

Elphie and Edgar are Christmas card-ready in their Santa and Mrs. Claus outfits.
