Today’s the day we celebrate PIGS! Seriously!
Years ago, I started a “Anti Bacon-Deprivation Day” with some of my friends! One day in March, we would make a point of eating bacon (something we all love, love, love!)! However, the funny thing was, that after a few years of celebrating “Anti Bacon-Deprivation Day,” I learned that March 1st is officially “National Pig Day!” Awesome, huh?
So, to kick off March (which is going to be official “Brevan McLean” month in my mind and here on my blog), let’s start with celebrating “National Pig Day”! Shall we?
Now, be sure and consume some bacon today as part of your “National Pig Day” celebration. Maybe have BLTs for supper! Maybe have a toasted bagel, slathered in cream cheese, and generously sprinkled with REAL Bacon Bits for breakfast or a snack! While you’re out and about pick up a pig! (Mitch and I are going to see Gnomeo and Juliet together today, so I’ll pick mine up then.) It doesn’t have to be a big pig…it can be like a little farm animal or something with a picture of a pig on it! Picking up any bacon or pork products also counts.
Next, be sure and enter my blog contest for this week! Just tell me a pig story or tell me about the new pig you acquire today (via a comment here, Facebook or e-mail) and I’ll pick my favorite Pig Tale (Get it?) as the winner! The prize is a fun little game our family LOVES called, Pig Pile! We LOVE this game! My friend Rhonda sent it to us one year for Christmas and it’s soooo fun! It’s really easy to learn and anyone over about ten or eleven will love it!
March is fun! I love green and St. Patrick’s Day and the fact that spring is upon us! Furthermore, I love Brevan! So watch for some “Brevan-ness” to come spilling out of my random brain, too!
Meanwhile, HAPPY NATIONAL PIG DAY!
