Day 247: National Pig Day

Day 247: National Pig Day

March 1 is National Pig Day in the United States. It is a day where the pig is celebrated. The holiday celebration was started in 1972 by sisters Ellen Stanley, a teacher in Lubbock, Texas, and Mary Lynne Rave of Beaufort, North Carolina. With this theme of Pig, I have decided to dress up as the most famous female pig known worldwide – Miss Piggy from The Muppets (thanks for the heads up Satay Chicken!)

In honour of the pig I give you this famous Simpsons exchange between Homer and Lisa:

Lisa: I’m going to become a vegetarian

Homer: Does that mean you’re not going to eat any pork?

Lisa: Yes

Homer: Bacon?

Lisa: Yes Dad

Homer: Ham?

Lisa: Dad all those meats come from the same animal

Homer: Right Lisa, some wonderful, magical animal!

  1. Pssst, Miss Piggy is from The Muppets, not Sesame Street 😉

    Still a great costume, though. You nailed it!
