A little late to be reminding us, but we have from now through November 1st (International Vegan Day) to celebrate a series of vegetarian "events" (those we made up) and to great one another cheerfully, slap them on the back hard enough to dislodge any tofu caught in their throats, and to join hands together and rally round the October Pole merrily.
In the words of that ancient vegan marines cheer: Tow - FOOOOO '
October 1 - World Vegetarian day
First WEEK of October 9celebrated variously, first called "World Week of Prayer for Animals" = October 1-8 plus residual days on both sides of 1-8 October)
October 2 - Gandhi's Birthday/World Farm Animals day (FARM) or World Day for Farmed Animals
October 4 - Birthday of St. Francis, Patron Saint of Animals (canonized, therefore it's a Catholic feast day that oughta be vegan)
October 15 - United Nations World Food Day (for global "food security", ample but sustainable agriculture, etc.)
November 1- International Vegan Day (completes the full month of celebration and outreach)
Happy Vegetarian Day, Week, Month, Life...!
