Since 1972, March 1st is National Pig Day and is dedicated to the celebration of the beloved pig. This holiday is celebrated on March 1st every year in most parts of the Midwest of the United States.
National Pig Day includes events at zoos, schools, nursing homes, and sporting events around the United States. It is also recognized at “pig parties” where pink pig punch and pork delicacies are served, and pink ribbon pigtails are tied around trees in the pigs’ honor.
This holiday’s purpose is to honor a domesticated livestock species that is considered to be one of the most intellectual and important species.

However, once you get to know our porcine friends a little bit more, you’ll see that being called a “pig” isn’t too bad after all.
