Today March 1st is also a sticky day – it’s National Peanut Butter Lover’s Day. It salutes America’s favorite sandwich spread. Who didn’t have peanut butter and jelly sandwiches while growing up? Heck, Bacon’s dad still has one for lunch every day now!
Smooth peanut butter is by far the most popular followed by crunchy. These days, they even have extra crunch…which is what Bacon’s dad eats and loves!
You can put peanut butter on sandwiches, crackers or celery – mostly anything that can ‘hold’ the wonderful substance. Bacon has been known to get some on celery – lucky little piggy.
Celebrate this day with a little – or a lot – of peanut butter. Heck, maybe top it off with a nice tall glass of cold milk. Sounds like a fabulous day to me!
And the question of the day – what is your favorite brand? Smooth or crunchy?

TODAY IS *MY* DAY!
Normally, I would let me friend Journalist Rocky the Squirrel tell you about important and interesting holidays. But today, well today is *my* day.
I bet you didn’t know that I have an entire holiday to myself? Well – I do!! Today is National Pig Day. I wait all year for my holiday. This is my third one and the party is on!
But you’re probably asking yourself what is national pig day?
“National Pig Day
National Pig Day is an event held annually on March 1 in the United States to celebrate the pig. The holiday celebration was started in 1972 by sisters Ellen Stanley, a teacher in Lubbock, Texas, and Mary Lynne Rave of Beaufort, North Carolina.
According to Rave, the purpose of National Pig Day is “to accord the pig its rightful, though generally unrecognized, place as one of man’s most intellectual and domesticated animals.”
Since today is my day, I get to do what I want… within limitations. I get my favorite foods. I get the extra loving and snuggles. I get a piggy massage. I get my hooves done. Whatever I want – it’s all about pleasing this piggy. To all my fellow pig friends – cash in on this our holiday – enjoy it to the fullest!!
Yawn, I think I’ll start like I am in this picture. On the couch and snuggled with mommy!
