In honor of National Pig Day (I’m not making this up). I thought I’d post this piece from my book “The Barnyard Night Before Christmas” in which the pig plays prominently. Actually, he is the brave hero in the climactic action sequence as you can here in a previous post. No animals were harmed in the creation of the book. Begun in 1972 by two Midwestern sisters, the goal of National Pig Day is “to accord the pig its rightful, though generally unrecognized, place as one of man’s most intellectual and domesticated animals“. I agree. I think I’ll celebrate tonight by having a tasty pork burrito at Cafe Rio.
