Happy National World Pig Day- 1st March 2024

Pigs are one of the most important parts of our daily life, Ether you are vegetarian or non-vegetarian. Because vegetarians use the pig bank to store their money and non-vegetarian use pigs as food.

Pigs are very intelligent pet animals. Most people train pigs as their pet animals. Some of them, train them for the tournaments. Because in America pigs tournaments are very famous. 

These types of tournaments are organized on 1st march on national pig day. Moreover, In zooms, schools, farms, and local community groups celebrate this day like other events.

It starts in 1972, when two sisters, Ellen Stanley & Mary Lynne start Observing the importance of pigs in our life, and they want to give the respect that pigs deserve. The siblings think that “Accord the pig it’s rightful, though generally unrecognized, place as one of man’s most intellectual and domesticated animals”. 

But, some people start eating pork products on this day, which two sisters didn’t want on that day. As well, pig lovers also stop this trend. In my opinion, we must avoid this on National Pig Day.
