Pig Day

Pig Day recognizes and gives thanks to domesticated pigs. For some unknown reason, big, pot-bellied pigs seen in zoos, are often the symbol of the day. Pigs are clever and intelligent animals. But, most people are unaware of this high level of intelligence. They can be taught to do tricks. Some people even keep them as pets. Today is a day to give pigs the respect that they deserve.

Pig Day has also seen pig parties - which has included pink punch, pork snacks and ribbon pigtails tied around trees to honour our pigs!

A family in Long Island takes a different approach by not eating pork treating their pet pig instead. Whether the day is meant to give pigs a break or appreciate the goodness we get from eating them is left open.

So why don't you mark the day? You could cook up a roast or do something small like wear pink!
