It is finally March. And I want to shout “hooray!”
I start anticipating spring as soon as New Year’s Day is over. I don’t mean to say that I just endure January and February. I actually enjoy both months and have things I like to accomplish in those first months of the year.
But in March I let myself feel the excitement of knowing spring will begin in less than 3 weeks. Joy of my heart, it is my favorite season.
There are other things about March that I recently learned. Why not share the wealth of information with you?
According to Kids-List.com, March 1st is National Pig Day. Who would have thought that pigs have their own day. It isn’t quite up to the status or commercialization of Secretaries Day or Grandparents Day, but it inspires some interesting thoughts. Pigs are actually smarter than we think they are and can be taught to do many tricks or maneuvers.
You have to admit that baby piglets are just cute. I always hope to see a litter of them with their big mama sow at the Kentucky State Fair.
If I were a farmer, maybe I’d give my pigs an extra corn cob or two, or even a nice scratch behind their ears. The Kids-List site recommends parents read books with their children about pigs or make a pig mask or study pigs. Any of those ideas would get children to think and be creative. What about watching Charlotte’s Web and cheer for Wilbur?
Myself, I think National Pig Day just sounds like a day to pig out on something. Hmm, I’m starting to get a bit hungry. Anyone for a ham and cheese sandwich or maybe a BLT?
I hope I brought a smile to your face. Laughter is good medicine. Feel free to leave a comment and bring a smile to my face.
I loved having a chance to read your blog again. PIGS I love them too. They are my daughter MaRanda’s favorite animal.She has quiet a collection of the little creatures,She even sent pig Christmas cards this year. We even had a pot bellied pig that her dad brought home for a pet for Mandy. It was to messy to be a house pet though.You’ll have to ask her about her experience with him some time. LOve Ya.
It’s nice to have you back in circulation, Elaine.
