National Pig Day 2017

Reason to celebrate: March 1, 2017 is National Pig Day.

Pig Day

The Porker is a wholly underrated animal, so this big day was made in 1972 to try to raise recognition of the intellectual expertise, versatility and basic tastiness of the modest Porker.

Commemorate Pig Day by tying pink bows to trees to symbolize curly pink tails, and afterwards either provide the bad piggies a break in recognition of their service, or tuck into a wonderful bacon sarnie-- your choice.
