It's an udder bummer for those looking forward to celebrating, but in the light of the coronavirus outbreak, Chick-fil-A has officially postponed their annual Cow Appreciation Day, an all-out festive bonanza devoted to Chick-fil-A's bovine mascot. (In previous years, fans of the fast food chain were encouraged to wear cow apparel for a chance to score free Chick-fil-A food.)

"Ever since 2005, we have celebrated Cow Appreciation Day – a tradition for Chick-fil-A® that gives us the opportunity to thank our guests and is an excuse to dress up like the Cows!" reads a statement on the company's website. "This year, we have decided to postpone the annual holiday in honor of our beloved bovines. We made this decision with the communities we serve in mind, keeping Safe Service as our highest priority at this time. Until we can gather again in person and celebrate our Cows, we have created a few fun ways to keep the spirit of Cow Appreciation Day alive this summer."

While we're sad this annual tradition won't be taking place this summer, we're looking forward to the day when it's safe for everyone to gather once again. In fact, we have a feeling our costumes for the next Cow Appreciation Day are going to be more elaborate and impressive than ever with all the extra downtime at home we've had. Time to dust off the sewing machine and get to amoosing ourselves.
