Why are Owls so Popular right now?

I have noticed tons of owls lately.. why or what made them so popular and what do you think the next big animal or thing is up and coming.

BTW I thinks the owls are super cute!

I have no idea, but I do know that there are Owls in the Girl Scout cookie sales clip art...

I don't know either. I recently did an Owl/Lollipop themed cake that was so stinking cute! I wondered where the Owl theme came from too.

I noticed it also. Normally, my husband gives my girls some heart related jewelry every Valentine's Day. This time he gave them sterling silver Owl necklaces and told them "who loves you, who?who?" when they opened them this morning. Kinda corny, I know. They loved them. They wore them to school - one is in college the other high school.

I think it's because that is the popular invitation and party theme right now. Most people pick out the invitations and plates first and then match the cake to it. Last year it was ladybugs or castles.
If you can't find time it do it right..how will you find time to do it over?

I know alot of the owl hype got started with the "look whoo's one" invitation and partyware collection that features cute owls...probably a good way to keep up on the latest trends is to visit wedding invitation and party invitation websites and see what the newest designs are...when it comes to events people typically start out with picking an invitation and then basing the designs of the party around that.

There is a FANTASTIC animation film called Legend of the Guardians, maybe thats something to do with it?

Also, don't forget the "clockwork" owl made a comeback last year in the new Clash of the Titans movie. It only had a 3 second cameo, but I know I wasn't alone when seeing the owl brought back instant memories of how much I loved him growing up with the first movie.

I remember the owls from the 70's!! When I was in about 6th grade, we were all making macrame owls that our mothers would hang in the kitchen window. icon_lol.gif And who remembers the Tootsie Roll commercial with the owl??? icon_lol.gif
The owls that are currently trendy look really cute, and they should be pretty easy to make out of fondant....maybe I'll have to try one.

Owls were big in the 70s? icon_confused.gif Seriously? I was a teenager thru-out the 70s and I swear, no one in my crowd had any kind of fascination with owls! As evil teenagers, we definitely would have made fun of them if they did!icon_lol.gif
