Think back to when you were a child, and you sang ‘Old MacDonald Had A Farm’, what was the first farm animal that came to your mind? If it was a pig, then no one can blame you. Pigs are adorable, cuddly, and smart. Why are we talking about pigs? That is because today is national pig day, and let’s talk about the history of that.
March 1st urges you to read up on one of the most adorable farm animals around, which is the domesticated pig. That is not thinking about the last delicious pork chop, slice of ham, or bacon you last enjoyed. You may not even want to eat any of that again once you learn about how intelligent, affectionate, and cuddly pigs really are. And if you are one of the many people who have a pet pig, then give your special pet all of the love and attention in the world. Since pigs are so clever and smart, why not teach your pig a few tricks? You will be so amazed by how quickly they learn those tricks.
On March 1st every year, you will hear about events revolving around this special animal at schools, zoos, sporting events, and nursing homes in the USA. You will also hear about pig parties and parades as well. You may even want to go and buy yourself a pig collectible on this day to celebrate National Pig Day. Why not watch your favorite pig cartoon characters such as Piglet from Winnie the Pooh or a Loonie Toons special that features Porky Pig or Petunia Pig. Why not go pig out on your favorite food while you are watching the program?
History Of National Pig Day
National Pig Day started in 1972. There were two sisters with the names of Ellen Stanley and Mary Lynne Rave who felt it was necessary to honor pigs then. Mary lived in Beaufort, North Carolina at the time, and Ellen was a teacher who resided in Lubbock, Texas. These sisters had an affinity for pigs and established this day because of how, according to them that pigs deserve more dignity and recognition as intelligent and wise animals.
Therefore, after that, the recognition of the intelligence and cleverness of pigs reached many people. After that time, schools, petting farms, and zoos celebrated pigs because they are lovable creatures.
