National Pig Day!

01 Mar


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!!

        Yum. I love it when Mom fixes pancakes. She always makes me one just for me. Maybe I can talk her into it tonight. It’s been a while. Enjoy the rest of Pig Day.

        You should sweet friend! Pancakes are yummy! Mom has a pan that she uses for me that makes them into the shape of a pig face. I love them! XOXO – Bacon

        Wow, Mom has a special pan too, but it’s just round. Some day I wish I were a pig – but as long as I get a pancake, it doesn’t really matter, right?

    Guess what I just found out, Bacon? National Pancake Day is at the end of February! Did your Mom know that when she decided on your treat?

    Mom decided to cook something different for us – since shes eating a lot of soup while she gets over her cold.. CORNBREAD! She makes it gluten-free, so this is the first time I’ve ever gotten to taste it. I am in love.
    Woof! TINK

      If dad had his way here, every day would be pancake day – snorts with piggy laughter. And GF cornbread? Cornbread is so awesome. I’ve never had the GF one before though. It tasted great? XOXO – Bacon

      • Madelyn Griffith-Haynie, MCC, SCAC

        03/02/2017 at 3:34 pm

        Mom says the way she makes it tastes exactly the same – and I loved it too. She tinkered with a cornbread muffin recipe of a 2-legs she lived with in college, which has an extra egg and just a tiny bit of sugar – but she makes it in a heavy black skillet. Yummie!

      • Piglove

        03/02/2017 at 4:09 pm

        Black skillet is a MUST. Mom does believe in her black skillets. I think that is a mandatory southern thing – snorts with piggy laughter. XOXO – Bacon

        03/02/2017 at 4:11 pm

        Yep – and Mom says good to knock out intruders too. I almost wish we’d get one so I could I could see her in action. 🙂

      Do that. You never know when I might come knocking at your door. Snorts!! XOXO – Bacon
