Piggy party time: National Pig Day is coming

Need a cure for the Monday blues? Our photo feature is here to help provide a brief diversion from your workday routine with a small dose of squee, wow and aww. Enjoy!

From the moment a child first reads Charlotte’s Web or sees the movie, a love for pigs is instantly born. One can’t help but fall for “some pig” Wilbur. Let that inner enchantment out because it’s the pigs’ time to shine with a day of their own.

When is National Pig Day? Every year March 1 is the day set aside to celebrate all things pig: their intelligence, charm and suitability as pets. So take some time to enjoy cute pig pictures and embrace the pig ― from their adorable oink to the tip of their curly tails. Who knows? You may wish to open your heart and home, because everyone pictured is available for adoption.
