National Pig Day is celebrated on March 1 of every year. Events will be conducted to commemorate the pigs. Pigs are part of our life whether it may be bacon or ham that we have breakfast or the little porcelain coin receptacles that we use to save our money. Recently people made strides to bring the pigs as their favorite pets especially the big ones which is pot-bellied. The day includes some events and celebrations that will be held in Schools, Zoos, and Nursing homes. Hence National Pig Day is a day to say thanks and recognize domesticated Pigs.

History of National Pig Day

It was created by two sisters named Ellen Stanley and Mary Lynne Rave in 1972. Ellen Stanley is a school teacher in Lubbock, Texas whereas Mary was from Beaufort, North California. They created the National Pig Day to accord the pig to its rightful, though commonly unrecognized place as one of the man’s most intellectual and domesticated creatures. Pigs are brilliant and intelligent, but some peoples are not aware of their high level of intelligence. To some people, pigs are household pets that can be trained and taught tricks. In 1772, there was a pig named Learned Pig which was prepared to tell the time, count, and the other tricks to entertain the crowds in the street of Dublin. On National Pig Day, events and celebrations will be held at zoos, schools, and Nursing Homes. It is also recognized at “Pig Parties” where the pink ribbon pigtails will be tied around the trees in the pig’s honor and pink pig punch and pork delicacies will be served.
